Look at me and think I'm weak
If a knight in shining armor is what you seek
Look away, for I'll just hide
It's not my day. I've lost my pride

I can't fight off the monsters underneath your bed
I can't heal your wounds of deep blood red 
I can't shine light on all that is dark
I can't shield you from all danger and harm

I will, of course, care if you are to die
I will say a prayer
and I will of course, cry

I will wish I'd done more to save you from this fate
I will wish I'd been there, kept you from that state 
I will regret every second I hadn't said more
I will wish I'd kept our bond, all I was living for
I shot for the sky
I’m stuck on the ground
So why do I try, I know I’m gonna to fall down
I thought I could fly, so why did I drown?
Never know why it’s coming down, down, down.

lovely! I love the feelings of powerlessness. I sort of get form this that these days we can't have knights in shining armor because the battles we need fought can't be won with swords.

Thank you. :) The battles these days require so much more than just a sword.

ugh, i have often thought that it would be just so much easier to have an actual battle than all the things we do today

...Maybe. I'm not to crazy about wars but it would sure as hell be a lot easier.

I agree completely with you about wars, it's just hard to fight when you don't even realize there's a war

You realize it later when it starts getting worse.
