So many secrets, so little space
One little turn, another lost face
So many stories, one tired mind
Which lost me did I leave behind?
Names and places opening my eyes
Can’t find my way home even if I tried
Wandering too far, following the heart
I’m at the end, but where did I start?
Forgotten people & their dark songs
All in a little room where I belonged
One little window and you leapt out
I was asleep, I was asleep throughout.
Silences lingered with their little folk tales
A moment of peace before the siren wails
Or is that quiet a warning to impending screams?
A bloodied toenail in the street of dreams.
Sturdy my friend, let’s stop this sting
Let the distances solidify, let our ship sink
But don’t drift any farther, I’ll be alone again
From my heaven of pain, my hell of strength.
