The Great Unknown

THE GREAT UNKNOWN - Written by Carroll Bryant



Walking down the trail of life
Taking in all the sights
My eyes fall upon you

And in my mind I see the light
At the moment of your delight
It’s true … girl it’s so true

I got carried away

Then the next thing I know everything starts to shatter
Everything meaningful no longer matters
I fall into the great abyss

The next thing I know everything is something
All that you gave me turned out to be nothing
I crawl into my emptiness

And no, I will not pretend that this ain’t the end
I know it is and now I finally find out what it is to hurt
And yes, I’ll climb out of this you see
But I still just can’t believe
You played me and all I got was this mother fucking shirt

Waking up inside my day
Nothing left for me to say
Except that I am a fool

Through all the riffs and arguments
Wasted energy I have spent
On you, girl, all of it on you

The next thing I know everything is shaking
My stupid heart just keeps on breaking
I slide right into hell

The next thing I know I can see you crying
Bowing your head just to hide your smiling
Running back to the one with the dirty smell

You got carried away

And no, I will not pretend that this ain’t the end
I know it is and now I finally find out what it is to hurt
And yes, I’ll climb out of this you see
But I still just can’t believe
You played me and all I got was this mother fucking shirt

I suppose that I should thank you
And what you did to me
You opened up my eyes when I was blinded

I suppose that I should be grateful
This world is a handful
If you let it then you’re gonna run out of time

Walking down the trail of life
My eyes fall on you
The great unknown
I stand alone

I guess I just got carried away again

And no, I will not pretend that this ain’t the end
I know it is and now I finally find out what it is to hurt
And yes, I’ll climb out of this you see
But I still just can’t believe
You played me and all I got was this mother fucking shirt

And no, I will not pretend that this ain’t the end
I know it is and now I finally find out what it is to hurt
And yes, I’ll climb out of this you see
But I still just can’t believe
You played me and all I got was this mother fucking shirt
