Neglecting Destiny

It's about rejecting the ideas of a future other people have for you

I'm sleeping soundly for the first time in years

I'm dreaming without ghosts, the echoes that carry my fears

I'm now carrying the conviction that had left me for so long

I'm bearing a heavier burden, but I'm still going strong

 

I can't call myself a hero

But I feel like a better man than before

All of my problems fade to blend with the black

I'm not saddled by other people's pasts anymore

 

Defined by what people want you to do to yourself

But has anyone ever asked me what I wanted to do

I honestly couldn't care for your sense of destiny

I will neglect, not regret, all the things you want of me

 

I can't call myself a hero

But I feel like a better man than before

All of my problems fade to blend with the black

I'm not saddled by other people's pasts anymore

 

I will be what I ask myself to be

I will be much more than I know

Never to surrender the last bastion of my fate

I've seen others realise the truth too late

The End
