​Tacks And Strings

This song is by Polaris At Noon and appears on the album Season One - The Prospect (2008).

I've got a picture on the wall
I've got it taped with maps
Tacks and strings, they stab where I've gone
I know I'm close and I'm on a roll
My intuition says it all
That I should lead myself
Instead of placing bets on the ones
That I know I can't fully control

And I standing out enough to make it now?
Will I see my name on the wall?
I have the guts to start my own route
Somehow I will take this over, I know
I'll make it out alive

I know I've seen these walls before
I'm running circles 'round to find the way out
It's so near
I'm finding closure in what I fear
Now I'm making my attack
I've got my weapons packed
And my armor strapped
Fight the war
And let the gates release my storm

And I standing out enough to make it now?
Will I see my name on the wall?
I have the guts to start my own route
Somehow I will take this over, I know
I'll make it out alive

I know you're scared
Calm down
Breathe in
I know you're scared
Calm down
Breathe in, yeah

Am I standing out enough to make this count?

And I standing out enough to make it now?
Will I see my name on the wall?
I have the guts to start my own route
Somehow I will take this over, I know

And I standing out enough to make it now?
Will I see my name on the wall?
I have the guts to start my own route
Somehow I will take this over, I know
And I'll make it out alive
And I'll make it out alive
