father time, go fuck yourself

i secretly wish the singing would stop
push me forever away from the top
telling my stories to those on the side
wishing to find a dark place i can hide

i'm riding with strangers that grin as they pass
follow me faithful with strength i can't match
i whither and falter shamed by good deeds
without the blessings of those i have freed

the hole that i dig will bury my doom
hurry to cheat as the day ends to soon
the dread in my eyes will hold me in place
as breath i once tasted is now what i chase

stumble and rise as i try to fight
the loss of my skin with each passing night
further i go as the trail shows its wear
my days feel like numbers with none i can spare
