wherever we can

I want to go out there and see what it is all about
I want to go see where the lines is for crossing
I want to experience the thrill of going beyond
I want the knowledge of the beginning and the end

where there is a start there are multiple finishes
where there is a wall there is a way over
we’ll stay on the path to meet the maker
we’ll stay on the edge until we are all made whole

when those eyes are looking back at you, you will know
when to look away and how to save yourself
the drink will be dark and strong and nourishing
the sight you will encounter tears the scream from your throat

what do we do to avoid looking the monster in the eyes
what do we do to keep everyone safe tonight
as much as we can
as well as we can
wherever we can
