Floating so perfect, chasing that snowflake that melts away
Choking on silence
Bearing the burden, caught in the current we float astray
We’re all hanging by a thread

Hollow and resonant
It seems that these strokes hang in the bitter February air
It seems I’m caught in such a paradox
Holding on to trip on my own feet yet never touch the ground

That’s make believe, you’re just losing touch with reality
These words echo still
Poured through the inkwell
Just ask yourself, what would you rather have if you had the choice?
The sleep that never ends, the rest that won’t begin
This isn’t real

I do not fear death
I fear what whisked that fear away

All is well and we’ll, we all vanish in synch
Standing so tall by the precipice we call love
Stitch your lips shut. Stigmatized

I heard the muffled sound, seeking shelter from the rain
With our smothered lungs we found hell and settled in,
Keep up, keep Scaling that summit with two broken legs

I hear the clawing at the door, screaming out, the words falling on deaf ears
I see the weight in the words, falling down, we fly make believe on wings of lead

Is this make believe?
Clawed in the closet door
These words echo still
Poured through the inkwell
This emptiness filled the cup
Floating so perfect, well perfect couldn’t breathe
