(Samwell-Smith/Relf/McCarty)

Shapes of things before my eyes,
just teach me to dispise.
Will time make man more wise?


Here, within my lonely frame.
My eyes just hurt my brain.
But will it seem the same?


Come tomorrow, will I be older?
Come tomorrow, maybe a soldier?
Come tomorrow, will I be bolder than today?
