    I just wrote this and I don't know how I feel about it yet. Tell me what you think.

    Trials

    You took a hint, forgot high class
    Always knew but never asked
    When every dollar hungry protégé
    Put on the old beggar's face
    You said you shouldn't have to care
    You'd leave and life would meet you there
    I know wherever that might be
    You'll have a place out there for me

    So think fast and down the drinks we stole
    Like trouble's got a face to show
    Like we've got more than just a room
    My brother, me, my conscience, you
    For what it's worth they let us sleep
    And cloud or heads with thoughts like these
    So as if to fuel this drive to go
    You said to me out on the road,

    "I'm gonna steal like I have the right
    Like any chaser on any night
    Bloodshot, black eyed, and written off
    As a deadbeat monument to life
    So let the glasses pile up
    What's mine is yours if it's enough
    And though I'm in this for myself
    I'll never count the wide-eyed out"

    But there's a stillness in this place
    Like air in empty concert halls
    Where once we were up on that stage
    Before the crash, before it all collapsed
    I think that sometimes we forget
    What drove us to face what was left
    To shout it over any crowd
    To fill our lungs and hearts with vows

    Very good, I really love the first two lines of it. The way asked and class work together. Nice.
