Closer To The Reaper – Jake Allen Sharp

 

Clouds gather around me it’s raining everyday and you wonder how it got this way

When the world is against you and it’s not just in your head you think you’d be better off dead

Last stand for what’s right, on my battle weary feet

Have I been too nice, to all the people that I meet

Justice misaligned, making deep pockets deeper

But all ill-gotten gain, brings you closer to the reaper

Storms that have been building, spin around inside my head, determination replaces dread.

If the world is against me, I draw a line in the sand. Right here and now, I will make stand

Last stand for whats right, on my battle weary feet

No more being nice to all the people that I meet

Justice misaligned, making deep pockets deeper

Ill-gotten gain brings you closer to the reaper

Trouble seems to find me, no matter what I do. I will have no trouble finding you

On days like this, I look at all the pouring rain. A cold representation of my pain.

Last stand for whats right, on my battle-weary feet.

Am I too swift to judge everyone I meet?

Justice misaligned, making deep pockets deeper

All ill-gotten gain, brings you closer to the reaper.
