The Music: Lyrics & Lead Sheets: Sketch (working title)

-- Lyrics: John McGaraghan
-- Music: Chris Haugen

Underneath my madness and deep behind my eyes
you'll find the evidence of my demise.
An inferno on the floodplain, a deluge from the skies
I guess it shouldn't come as a surprise.

Solitude has gripped me tight
and it takes away my only light:
to be satisfied by simple, delighted by mundane
completed just by calling out your name

Find a way to say your name
Find a way away from the blame
just by calling out your name

Over the horizon our history appears,
weak and all but wasted by the years.
Worn away by wondering and fractured by my fears,
close enough to touch but never near.

I find myself unworthy of
the pleasures that I used to love:
to be grateful for familiar, contented by the tame
completed just by calling out your name
