Fermented & Seasoned

Fermented like grapes inside of fine wine
Seasoned like steaks on plates of fine dine
Standing erect with the spine of a stand-up man
Crossing many of plains that contain quicksand

Hard to withstand the music that's playing repeatedly
Tired of taking knees in memory of fallen family
Bravely, I still rise like a rose beneath the Sun's rays
Wondering when it'll be me who sees my end of days

You could say it's morbid of me to constantly think of mortality
But I see that, at the drop of a dime, I can be a casualty
Another fatality prematurely meeting his demise
Causing my family to grieve with more tears in their eyes

Trying to focus my eyes on more joy than pain
As blue skies get enveloped by clouds and rain
How do you maintain smiles through miles of decay
As hope's tires start displaying signs of fray

When losing your way despite the use of GPS
Cause satellite images get distorted by stress
All I can do is my best while behind the wheel
And hope hydroplaning doesn't total my steel
