It’s swirling in my head, picking up speed
the familiar fog, that no one would need.
out of nowhere, it showed up like a flash
causing my head to ache and my teeth to gnash
you’re not invited, so please take your leave
i’m sure you know, that I will not grieve.
when you can jump outside the line
whistle as you go
and leave no one left behind
but tell them so they’ll know
tell me who you are, open up my eyes
been blinded too many years, please from me don’t hide
for you are light and love, send it now on me
so i can see your smile, and better i will be
if i wander down the street, what is it that i’ll see?
people who know who they are, but none of them are me
one day a girl whose smile shines bright is playing by the brook
but turning around you see her fall, and now she’s been mistook
no room for falls, just do it right so nothing mars the day
cause if it does, the pain jabs deep and imprints on your brain
at the beginning all seemed right
now i’m drowning in the night
upside down i’m sinking
can’t stop what i’m thinking
didn’t you know it was true?
fire leaves a scar on you
when waiting on you breaks my heart, there’s no one else i can blame
i trudge my way back to the start, but find no one else in this game
trying to pick myself up, is more of a task than i knew
the pieces inside just erupt, and i find them messed up and askew
the glue isn’t holding so well, my brain melts them just at the thought
it breaks them and throws them pell-mell, while i see it was all just for naught
i’m angry and tired of this, it seems that i fell from the boat
i was swimming so as not to miss, the only thing keeping me afloat.
waiting on you, i do not like
it appears to me you’ve been on a hike
you say i can find you if only i look
where do you hide, is it under a brook?
i’ve searched night and day, only to find
disappointment that reaches far in my mind.
take it out to sea
let it slip from your hands
hear the plunk as it hits the water
sinking beneath the choppy waves
landing on the floor, it opens
it appears to be the same here too
buried beneath the sea
there is no escape
do i see the person out there
the wreckage of their lives?
when someone is destroyed by carnage
no light to help them thrive?
suffering alone is a familiar way to go
staggering just to stand up
but do i really know?
