Pulling the weight is easier said than done,
my arms are ready to break
and my legs are starting to fail me.
How could they perform their magnificent show
and teach through example when
we're not the same as them? I can't compete.
I've never been proud of a thing
and this is all I can do to stay sane.
Hide away, I couldn't bear someone building me up
just to have my journey fall through the seams.

Heavenly, you're far above.
Can you see the beggar with his hand hanging out?
My head is as low as my dignity,
you shouldn't understand how it's like.
I live in your shadows and I sleep in anguish.
I am hollow and I would have more than one wish.
I live in your shadows and I sleep in anguish.
I am hollow and I am walking on a collapsing bridge.
