Track Name: Hound
there's no ground on which i can stand
i have fallen off the face of the land
there has been no change in who i am
but when it came to swim or sink i swam
i'm just trying my best to be the bigger man
in the end i never even gave a damn

we've been shaking hands far too long
to the same old song
and you're putting me down easy
amidst the noise you fail to hear my plea
"don't think too much of me
i'll only let you down easy"

just let me go you've let me know i'm just a hound

more each day i'm running out of time
i just need another chance to lose my mind
but i'm roped in i can't break this leash
you've dropped the bowl but refused to feed me
so don't be surprised when i turn to leave
i think i've found a place where my bones can breathe

on a given day i rarely rest
no change of pace inside my chest
but it's brighter now than it's ever been
i'm gonna need to find myself
something to help these sleepless nights
to close the shades turn off the light
and in the dark your voice resounds
you've made it clear i'm nothing but a hound
