A simple goodbye, a rule we defy,
A faith that we keep and the ones we let die,
A knock on the door from a friend or a foe…


A promise returned, a secret we learn,
An unsuitable turn into places we don’t want to go,
When the wheels of fortune spin out of control…


A kind word tattooed on the marrow of our bone,
An ugly retort forever on loan,
All the things that we say, and the things that we don’t…


A birthright, a snakebite, a phone call at night,
A lottery ticket, a vicious gunfight,
A dream that we work for, and those we let burn…
