“The voices in my head are shadows, shadows
She comes to me, to tell me what they’re after
Says it ain’t the end boy but you best be careful, careful
Might catch your tail end in a circle, circle”

“I saw your father in the hall,
His ghost is living in our walls,
I heard him crying while you slept,
I heard him breaking things after you left”.

Who we are.

In the clearing stands a boxer
And a fighter by his trade
And he carries the reminders
Of ev’ry glove that layed him down
Or cut him till he cried out
In his anger and his shame
“I am leaving, I am leaving”
But the fighter still remains

With thanks to Paul Simon (Simon & Garfunkel) -The Boxer.
