The Dreamer's Gamble

Flip on a light
In a dark house
And all the shadows will double in length
When you're alone
You're so much more alone
When everything else is at stake
Talk to yourself in the mirror as the sky turns grey
Tell yourself whatever you want all the magic tricks are fake

The risks we take the lives we make
There's never been so much to fake
I think I'm just about to break
I do not know which road to take
The finish line's the starting gate
And what I love I also hate
