I'm stuck on top of a wall
And I don't know how I got here
I just know that I'm very alone
Because none of my friends are near.
I don't remember the climb,
I'm not sure how I got all the way,
Have I been wandering aimlessly
From yesterday to today?
I'm stuck on top of a wall
And I could topple to either side,
The one where my friends all live
And the one where others have died,
I don't know how to get down,
I don't even know where to start,
Is it somewhere in my muddled brain,
Or is it in my beaten heart?
I'm stuck on top of a wall
And I'm afraid my balance will fail,
That soon I'll be forgotten
In the lines of an old tale,
About how the world can be so cruel
To those who try their best,
Now I have to decide,
Do I fight or do I rest?
