The Person I've Become

most things this big don't stop
they just go on and on and on
i hope i'm too young to remember
which shot i heard the first
was it our courage yesterday
that kept 'em on the run
what did we lose along the way
to go from bad to worse

but i got to move on
i don't like the person i've become

darkness is falling
and i would catch it if i could
the only star i'm following
isn't yet out tonight
what would you give for peace
what would you give for good
and if you trade these in
you'll trade them in to fight

there is a heavy weight
bearing down on my chest
it's hard to breathe i know
will they come back again
