The Henry Bankshaft Chronicles

from by The Greater Gatsby



I have my regrets, don't we all? But I swore they'd never get to me.
I don't want to make myself a liar, six feet never looked so much like home.
I run from things I can't control, because cowardice is my normality.
I've been lost for so long that it just feels natural.

I am broken, I am incomplete, there's so much fear inside of me.
The word are easy to say, but hard to here. I can't take it, I don't deserve it, just leave me be.
(Oh Mother) Is this what you had in mind, so many years ago? The face of innocence turned to a heart of stone.
(Oh Father) I need you to understand, this is no fault of yours. The weight on my shoulders is of my own accord.
I am my own demons. I have never felt free. I dug my own coffin. I built my own grave.
It gets so hard to live, again and again, when I don't know who I am, or where to lay my head.

Where do I lay my head?
