I Used To Be A Runner

Out of my cell for a walk
There's a puzzle to this mystery
My own key doesn't fit in it's lock
Who did this to me?

Rattled by skeleton closet keys
It's as if there's no release
I swear the knob's covered in grease
Who do you think you are walking in with such ease?

I can't handle it
I'll just ramble shit
And burn this candle quick
And tell myself I'm piss poor management.

From all the damages
And the brainwaves cave into outlandish bits
That if i stay same she'll see what's strange
And she won't remain unless I'm changed

Is she stuck because I'm quicksand?
Is she here because she gives a damn?
How and why? Can't she tell who i am?
My legs stood planted, my mind ran.

It would eventually catch up
Though it still asks if I'm enough
My mind thinks too rough
But I've never witnessed anyone so tough

I will get over the why's for the wise
I have embraced the happy sighs
The greatest thing I've ever done with my life,
Was tell her hi, and eventually look into her eyes

Symbiotic minds 'cause i need her
The only person I'll ever bow to, to see her
She's my woman, i am beneath her
I could speak of my worship like a preacher

There isn't a doubt
I couldn't do without
She makes me very proud
So hear me loud

I am for you.
