When I look back I remember a time Much different from now A time when I didn't Have anyone Just Temporary connections Phasing in and out As the years went by I never understood Why it always hurt so much I still don’t I don’t think I ever will Those memories bring Such unease And with that unease Comes the thought Of losing it all Returning to nought The fear of loss A burden I can't shed A weight of my own Design Even knowing I'm not alone Is not enough To quell this ache I've been looking For an answer And if there is one Somewhere I don't know If I want it I don't know If I want it I don't know If I want it Is this the price I have to pay? To feel loved To feel whole If this is what it means To be complete I don't know If I want it All I want Is everyone to be happy Even if it means That I can't be The fear of loss A burden I can't shed A weight of my own Design I've accepted this as My reality Because I don't know Anything else

Endeavour 03:01
A pact was made It promised peace In this slice of heaven But even now That vow has not yet Been realised First twisted And bent Then broken These fields of gold Have turned to grey The fruit they once bore Has turned sour Sour Sour Sour Sour The shape of those words Twisted in two tongues Deemed as redundant They took their voice Rendered powerless Two became one Crippled by deceit Our very own Cry out Only to be silenced Silenced Silenced Silenced Silenced What use is it To sell a vision Of a better tomorrow If there's no today And we keep buying Into that vision However fictitious It may be Playing Our part In this make-believe Manaaki whenua Manaaki tangata Haere whakamua (Care for the land, care for the people, go forward)

Anguish Despair Hysteria Heartbreak Not here Not here Not here Not here Not here Not here Outrage Disgust Tragedy I sat so helpless Devoid of all feeling With idle fingers Unable to place blame Or understand Anything Overwhelmed and at wit's end I climbed those steps Unprepared No words Could ever be adequate And at the top I just stood there Motionless and empty handed With nothing to offer You didn't have to say a word But you did And they were enough And they were enough And they were enough And they were enough And they were enough And they were enough
