In the brightest day

In the brightest day

In the darkest night 

There’s always a shadow 

A place to hide and disappear 

Your safer than you think 

Out on the brink 

Though you can fall 

Though you can die 

Your far safer than those inside 

You couldn’t care less 

They couldn’t care more 

Is that the only thing 

The only thing that 

That separates you and them 

Opening night 

Honey this is show business 

And it’s bigger, better and brighter every year

Honey this is my life 

And it’s bigger, better and brighter every year

Honey this is Broadway

And it’s bigger, better and brighter every year 

The music plays 

The actors go on 

You smile it’s started 

The curtains go 

The lights are bright 

The set is ready 

It’s happening 

It’s opening night 

Night of mistakes 

Night of elation 

Night of collapse

Night of my life 

There was a time 

There was a time when men were kind 

When women were loving 

There was a time when the sun shined 

When the moon smiled 

There was a time when friends were real 

When family felt like family 

There was a time when strangers were distant 

When I was someone 

There was a time when work was easy 

When slavery was over 

There was a time when all turned black 

When darkness pervaded everything 

Then there was a time when the men became bastards 
When the women became whores 

There was a time when the sun imploded 

When the moon was shattered 

There was a time when friends left you for dead 

When my family became strangers 

There was a time when strangers were the only people to trust 

When I was no one 

There was a time when work was stressful 

When everyone became a slave 

There was a time when all stayed black 

When darkness became all 

That time is now 

Wheels

The wheels of life spin on spin on 

Yet I am still as always 

The wheels of life turn more turn more 

Tearing away all I have 

The wheels of life roll by roll by

And I just sit here watching 
I don’t need those wheels no more 

I ain’t got no need 

I’m moving on in my own way 

Fuck you world I’m going today 

Those wheels you all use 

Are foolish choices, you will loose 

But I don’t have them so I’ll be fine 

I’ll watch you fall I’ll watch you die 

And I’ll stand tall 

I’ll be strong 

Even when you’re long gone 

Because you’re going is my coming 

When you’re not there my life will be something
