Teach Me Humility
This story has taught me nothing I don’t already know
That lives pass by so quickly though time can seem so slow
And I could spend an eternity wandering, lost, no need to be found
And I can accept no less than certainty, I’m certainly nowhere bound

Now I’ve stared a dying man in the eyes
Felt his life drain as we said our goodbyes
Now I’ve seen life in all its fragility
Break into pieces to teach me humility

Now I know what it is having no feeling
Numb as the executioner, sharpened steel still gleaming
