Footprints in the Mud

from by Jesse Brewster

lyrics

There I stood, waist high in my destruction
Looking for any sign that’s it’s all worth it
This pain-filled life and then it’s gone
Drifted off into the ether
Another lonely pair of footprints in the mud

They say no matter how well we live
Everybody’s gonna die alone
Fear in their eyes until the moment
When there’s no need to be afraid anymore
Slipping away into the darkness
Just a lonely pair of footprints in the mud

Such a misplaced sense of obligation
That we should carry this for all of our days
Or does the truth lie with the non-believers
Who refuse to see any other way

Empty in the silence
All those wetted eyes in their confusion
Falling back into the echo
Another lonely pair of footprints in the mud
Just a lonely pair of footprints in the mud

We won’t carry this around; no we won’t carry this around
No we won’t carry this for all of our days
