The Other Side Of The Tracks

You forge down the path set by others

Fighting against the befallen curse

Unable to break free from the chains


Destined to continue down the desolate trail

Gazing across the tracks to where you want to be

Unable to make any progress against the restraints


The endless struggle

Against the unchanging tides

The constant exertion wearing you down


At the point of oblivion

A bright light comes into view

Forever changing your fate


One day you will look back at this bare, trampled ground

Covered by nothing more than the worn footsteps

And reflect on what got you to where you are
