    In the dark corners of my isolation
    it became clear to me
    that I was trapped by the very thought
    of what I came to be.

    Trapped inside my disappointment
    I struggled but couldn't break free.
    So I was forced to look inside the mirror
    and this is what I see.

    I see a song that lacks substance,
    I see a field of broken dreams.
    I see a mighty river that runs rampant
    but turns into a stream.

    I see the resentment and the frustration
    that lies within us all.
    At times I see signs of greatness
    but in time I'll see the fall.

    I see that hunter, that mighty hunter
    who hungers for his prey.
    At night I see that savage beast
    who loves and walks away.

    I see those choices, those foolish choices
    that put our lives in danger.
    I see that point when you can lose it all,
    I see the bullet inside the chamber.

    You may look at me and see foolish ways,
    but I see a candle in the wind.
    I looked at self, lost those foolish days
    and my wounds begin to mend.

    My heart begins to prosper
    my soul begins to soar.
    The pain stops, the insanity ends,
    my dreams aren't broken anymore.

    I realize that strength comes from within,
    knowledge from where you've been.
    And once God has taken you through the fire
    you will never be the same again.

    So I recognize the power
    and there's no need to be alarmed.
    Now I can tell you about the water
    because I was standing in the storm.
