Pink Socks

He is one and wonderful

But one alone still can fall

On his own and no one to call

Far from home, far from them all

Well he’s lonely in a place that he calls home

With no one to guide him back to the road

Now he’s stuck in a hole with his eyes closed

Calling out but no one can hear his silent cries

But it was only a matter of time, before the knife went in too deep

Before he put himself to sleep, with the world crumbling at his feet

But now there’s no going back, and all will have to live

With the memory of his soul, in search of a life in peace

But that’s what he wanted

He’s no longer feeling pain

He’s forgotten all his problems

Now his soul can rest again

So we’re standing all around

In the the graveyard in the rain

Wearing pink socks that you always wore

And crying out in pain

And I look to your family

All the ones you left behind

And all I see is despair

In their sombre eyes

Now I won’t leave them like this

Standing over their sons grave

In the most peculiar kind of way

Only memories can be saved

But that’s what he wanted

He’s no longer feeling pain

He’s forgotten all his problems

Now his soul can rest again.
