I can leave the dark behind me
as the world looks to the day
I can move to martial music
as I watch the children play
I can turn each crazy corner
as the sun beats down once more
I can whistle up an army
to even up the score
and though my time is passing
with the ticking of the clock
I can leave it all behind me
with the turning of the lock
still I ask you to consider
disregarding all my sins
is there anywhere I’m welcome
when the day once more begins?
