SIGHT:: you wrap around me in the fading mist i call my home. you penetrate me; your unforgiving hand. i've often pushed away these shackles that i've learned to deal with. i fear redemption. i fear the change... we've walked a thousand miles to keep the past away from here. i've seen them die to understand our lives. i've often thrown away this silence that i've learned to deal with. another time; another day... you watch me sleep at night; your stretching arm around my head. my mouth still speaks promises you keep from me. i've often thrown away temptation that i'll never deal with inside my head. we'll die alone... :BACK AGAIN: i've seen the ocean fold under itself and fall back again... :ANOTHER JOURNEY THROUGH WATER: i've seen the world today. this time i will not make amends. i've seen my past portrayed. this time i will not let it end... this time the river runs red and it's all i know. this time the river won't end and it's all i need... i've seen enough today to hold me through the day we die. they watch me sing and play erotic thoughts as energy... this time the river runs red and it's all i know. this time the river won't end and it's all i need... :THE PHOTOGRAPH: we idolized subsidized legends of fame and conceit. do we dare to pretend anymore? legitimize alibis, lies that we humanize, subtle mistakes for reality. illusions delusions help us draw conclusions of images that once were seen as they are. now after the laughter her image was transferred through space and through time (how absurd yet sublime…) :AN EPIPHANY: far away i've seen a vision of the future. is the dream that helps me sleep at night my new reality? all along i've known this emptiness was just another means of saving face and now i'm much too young to die... this passes. won't you help me through tonight? i've spoken so much that i can understand why these things fall apart... i've thrown the pain away. i can't see the rain today. another time, another day. the silence fades to laughter....
