Measure of Peace

Lyrics

All this stress inside me

Eating away at my life

Clouding my thoughts

Will I find the cure I've always saught?

 

Every day there's something new

To sway me from the light

A darkness I can't penetrate

Sometimes I just wonder why

 

When I think of all the things I can be

And I know I've got a gift for all to see

There's always something holding me when others run free

Where's my measure of peace?

 

I can't think straight

And I'm becoming what I hate

Agitated at my fate

Sometimes I just wanna start all over again

 

But I know that's not the answer

I have to force myself

I've got to keep on moving

I can't quit now

 

When I think of all the things I can be

And I know I've got a gift for all to see

There's always something holding me when others run free

Where's my measure of peace?

 

Far away

I know there's a safe place for me

To escape from these troubles

I know it's there

But how long 'till I reach it?

It's hard to tell

Just its existence gives me hope
