Titular Arrogance in a Sigh (Pts. 1-1304.625)

And I sigh for the impossibly wry
The earthdiver as they ask their self why
As my laughter gives pry
In its wake, oh so shy
Wondering will our love die

Cause I can either walk or stay
Let the force fall or sway away
In an endless parade
Of laughter followed by my delay
But what would I say
If you listened in any meaningful way

I'd say that
If I see at all, I see me in you
There can be no lie if there is no truth
If you guard against no failure then they’ll have no proof
Just tell me lovingly what you expect me to do

Cause I can either walk or stay
Let the force fall or sway away
In an endless parade
Of laughter followed by my delay

I can either walk or stay
Let the force fall or sway away
In an endless parade
Of laughter followed by my delay
But today
I choose to say

All I have
Is my life
I said it once
I’ll say it twice
All I have
Is my life
And this is where
It must suffice
Where chaos takes control
And makes me more whole

And I know
This is a show
But it doesn’t mean
Energy slows
Or time will take its tolls
Cause energy is immortal

Go on take more of this
Self evident implore
Walk through this door
Fight your youth no more

I said it twice
I’ll say it thrice
All I have
Is my life
