Downtime
T J Rintoull

So
Is this what we call downtime
The moments in the dark
When all the voices come
To whisper from the shadows
That our agony
Is true

And I
I'm staring at the blackness
They tell me I am nothing
Words I think I think I want to hear
Just to stand up
And to be counted
To step out on the ledge
And just let go

And I can't hear it
I don't see the show
But I know
Cause the voices tell me they will never go
And I can't feel it
I can't be alone
Like a stone
Oh God the first step is the hardest one of all
Until I fall

So
Is this what we call good times
When we are all alone
And no one gives a shit
Like we are nothing
We could be there out there
On the ledge
Prepared to fall

And I can't feel it
I don't feel at home
But I know
Cause the voices tell me they will never go
And you won't see it
You won't be at at home
When I go
When the ground is paved
With skin and blood and bone
I'll be alone

So
Is this what we call downtime
