Standing True

the room is full
with a hundred new thoughts
and the air is stale with breath
a century learned
in one single night
with a light on over your head

and if you count
the tiles are all there
but you’ll never be able to say
and when you leave
well the path disappears
but you like it better that way
yeah you like it better that way

you move, like a man
when you stand, standing true
you move, yeah you move
standing true

my eye is caught
on the stand in your stare
where you practiced hiding all your thoughts
but when you raise them
back up to me
I know you’re not, I know you’re not
unaware

you move, like a man
when you stand, standing true
you move, yeah you move
standing true
and if you, have the chance
take your stance, standing true
like brand new, only you, standing true
