Me and Time Engaged In A Battle For Mine By: Carl Johnson II (Carl The Muse)

22 Dec


Its happening again, another one of these cycles I am stuck in

The darkness has taken stage and the sun has called it a day

On this night I refuse to let the darkness whisk me away

I say that and then suddenly it all begins

The light retreats and the darkness takes round one from me

I toss and turn as I lay on the ground

It knocked me right out and knocked me right down

I get a whiff of life and suddenly I start to come around

I open my eyes and jump to my feet

I’m about to hand darkness an awful defeat

Tonight won’t be the night and today won’t be the day

That darkness comes and whisks me away

My internal clock is off, I am awake all night

In fact its the most confusing time in my life

My body says sleep and my soul says go

And every night me and darkness come to blows

I know I gotta get it in, I can feel the force of darkness he is trying to win

Time is precious and I don’t waste mine

For the times darkness won

I am trying to take that back

It’s five o’clock somewhere, I’m trying to be there

Time after time this happens again

And I am sure it will until time stands still

Me and time engaged in a battle for mine, you say sleep and I say not me

It happens again the cycle I am stuck in.

High on my own supply and unable to come down

The battle rages on between darkness and light for control of my nights.

My place is standing up not lying down

Feels good to be alive darkness or light its all the same in my sight, an opportunity for life.
