in the sky overhead, it's the same sun watching us. in the sky overhead, watching us make the same mistake over and over. the world turns over. it's the same blue sky, after everything we've been through. it's the same blue sky, nothing new above you.
the clay hardens into brick. lay the mortar, make it stick. plant the seeds and watch them take hold. let the rain fall, acid and all. evaporate and return back to the clouds. we're hungry ghosts, making the most of what we've got and searching for light. we're hungry ghosts, making the most of what we've got, and searching for company. tell me again, the light in this world's going to end. tell me again, this world's going to end.
we define ourselves by what they're not. we end where they begin. we fall and rise again. i've been holding onto nothing, hoping to find a world that's this kind. is there anyone who shares my state of mind? we end where they begin. we fall and rise again. some demises last, when we can only see the past. we can only see the past and one another. we can only see the past and love one another.
i've done all i can do. i speak thinking you'd assume to quiet down and to listen. i point it out, you paint it in. what is the point in trying?
i awoke to the sound of sirens this morning. i awoke without a sense of mourning. i found it disturbing to find me falling in time with the rhythm of life. falling at times harder than others. sirens bring no wanting. sirens sing, "no, be still." forever on their way to nothing. it seems i'm always chasing something. keep me at bay. until dawn has gone, stay.
"you know that you'll never know," you said. "i'll go where you'll never go and i'll stay two steps ahead." that's the hardest thing to do - to stand right there next to you, as you make the choice not to choose. you make the choice not to choose, i'll make the choice to be of use. it's none of your concern, and it's not mine to learn. until you let it show, i won't let it go.
