engrave your name
in a stone that has seen a thousand storms
and admire how the sun still brightens
such a weathered gray

engrave your name “the imperfect soldier”
and know that many fought and lost the same fight

it’s a long way down from here to fall
for everyone to see
you renounce everything

now rest your head
and feel the scars turn back to wounds
there is no shame in your defeat
remember love only gives way to heartache
and those who hope die hopelessly

now engrave your name
in a stone that will not stand the test of time
because this place is better off
without so much as a single memory of you

now you truly know
now you truly know
how it feels to be broken
how it feels to have lost the fight
