All this time
All of my wrongs and rights
Rewritten and redefined
'Til I'm unworthy of my own life

Now they've marked my name with lines in the sand
Could've sworn that I was a good man
So, I search for clues
In what ways have I withered?
And what are the ways that I've bloomed?

So, throw your stones
At the foot of a dead man's throne
I'll get by, I'll be fine
Your aim's not as good as mine

I know way back when, I used to be happy
And I faintly recall how that felt
So, I ask myself
Did I used to be different?
Or was I just somebody else?

But the questions only remain
When the answer's always the same

So, raise your glass and toast your ghosts
And just leave me to mine
This should be my finest hour
Not something to survive — a time to get by

Whatever happens in the end
Even this will fade to black
So dim the lights and just relax
This is my final act

So, I'll trade this apple for the seeds
And then I'll plant an orchard of family trees
And I'll remember everything
I'll sleep soundly and I'll dream
I will catch my breath and mend my wing
And just let these West Acres
Take me in
