Even High

“Even High” by Gonto.

Just a child
Trying to make it through life
Meets the devil
With a tongue like a knife
They cut away
‘til there is no more to bleed
Another victim
Of the hate that we breed.

I was so much more
Than you ever will know
I had a dream
And the whole world to show
But you just turned away
When I needed you most
Oh I never really wanted to go…..

Am I even high
As I fall away
I was so lonely
And lost in this place
As I fall to the ground
And I’m nearing the end
I hope that I see you again

Mother and father
Work hard to survive
It’s hard enough sometimes
To just stay alive
Through all the fighting
Oh the feelings just die
You’re always falling
When you’re chasing that high

The booze, the drugs the pills
Are masking the pain
Building our lives
Or digging our graves
I loved you much more
Than you ever will know
Oh I never really wanted to go…..

Am I even high
As I fall away
I was so lonely
And lost in this place
As I fall to the ground
And I’m nearing the end
I hope that I see you again

See the man
Who lies there broken and cold
Fought for his land
But now has nowhere to go
One day a hero
Then the next you are gone
Locked in the trenches
Of a world gone so wrong

The things I think
Oh and the things that I dream
Hiding the madness
But inside I still scream
If you really cared
I wish you’d just told me so
Oh I never really wanted to go….

Am I even high
As I fall away
I was so lonely
And lost in this place
As I fall to the ground
And I’m nearing the end
I hope that I see you again

Am I even high
As I fall away
I was so lonely
And lost in this place
As I fall to the ground
And I’m nearing the end
I remember the times
That we shared here my friend
I reach up to the skies
With these words that I send
One day I’ll see you again.
