My Time is Upon You AloneWhy must your tears fill my eyesMore Like This
When I have done nothing worth some tries
The moonlight sets upon the day
My time has come to fade away.
Running from the sun, its just too much
Embrace the pain, for it is all you have.
How Well You LookOh,More Like This
How well you look through this stark gaze.
But you're different than once you were,
Hollowed out and defeated,
Raped of a piece of your soul.
Blackened, charred and degenerate.
I watched your loss.
I sipped on the pain with you.
How willingly you allowed a part of you
To be stripped away,
How ready you were to lose in your rush
To be more than you thought you were.
And now, you won't fight to get it back,
That sacred aspect that made you.
What you were.
The desired and desiring.
Loved in the dark.
Understanding of the light.
Histories repeatHistory is of it's own essenceMore Like This
Reverberating back and forth
with the memories of where we are
and where we are going...
Aren't we all just memories of the cosmos?
An echo of the past and spoken promise to the future
Or perhaps we're just the faded dream
Of an obsolete expression
Perhaps the world could do it better
If we learned to stop assuming
But assumptions are all we seem to have
as the world falls again into corruption
Will civilization fall upon its own sword?
Or will we finally recognize where we belong
in the grand scheme of where history meets tomorrow
I hesitate to hope because the corruption is so deep
The power is not with the majority but the few
Those whose determination seems to quell any distant dreams
So if civilization falls again will they be blamed?
Of course not, for why would those with everything
ever take responsibility for their actions?
History, we are a failed expression.
For we reverberate the same theme
never learning from the past
Always doomed to repeat.
Fleeting memoriesA simple smile, left by the windowMore Like This
Soft twilight speaks into the dawn
As the summer breezes remind me
Of who I used to be
In days gone
Eyes lit up with laughter
Her smile shimmers in my thoughts
but deep seeded sorrow just beyond
A glimpse past the window pane
Lifted hearts as solace found but drifted
soft clouds drift by as the stars wink
A moon shifting ever onward
The tide breaks upon scattered time pieces
of days gone by
Still, I think of the brief fleeting moment
When you and I could be one
Upon the frozen heartFocus, it won't be longMore Like This
Just have to hold on strong
Keep the feelings locked inside
Just pieces of the whole to hide
I never want to go back
Torment and pain, wracked
You still think it's soothing?
It's over and has been for a while
You'd never quite saved a smile
The defeated or the weak
Something else you'd tweak
And yet you pretended with charlatan eyes
That there was something, some prize
As fleeting the tide
Daydreams turned to nightmares in the blink of an eye
Nothing for you to say, don't try
As friendship dripped from your voice
Actions showed, your choice
Forgotten on the sidelines again
No, I'd rather not go where I've been
Do you think I need it?
Honeyed with promises of trust
Withered with laden dust
The rusted vocals of eternal youth
Ignoring the real truth
Fancied annuals of degradation
Not the strongest foundation
Empty of anything real
Who do you think you areWhy do you never seeMore Like This
The messes that you cause?
Why do you think we'll forget
the things that gave us pause?
Every action was recorded
every deed forever tracked
But still you think we'll forget
the corners to which we were backed
Why should we forgive you?
Why should we let it go?
You broke every single promise
This is the reward you sow
I watched as you drug my friends down
I did my best to mitigate
As you spiraled downward
It's you I began to hate
But because you were family
because you are their son
I kept trying to help you
Though you hurt everyone
Every line that you crossed
Every lie you spoke
Every twisted thing you did
Every heart you broke
But you think that I will accept
your apology now?
You are always sorry
but your head you never bow
I will not forgive you
I will not associate
As I said before
At this point it's you I hate
What you've done to my family
the things you did to my friends
It wasn't you who suffered
we were a means to your ends
No words can make me forgive you
Chose to daydreamChose to daydreamMore Like This
Whisper at the fallen rain
Chose to Hope
Knowing that it would fail
Watching the sunset off in the distance
Seeing the sunrise.. It feels like forever
So far away from where I used to be
Everything is fading and I'm not who I used to see
I dreamt of the dawn in the summers wake
But we said goodbye when the winter came
I long to open my mouth to speak
But the words get caught in my throat
It would be easier to catch a cloud than speak
Always saying Goodbye
When I want to say Hello
ReleasedHold out your handMore Like This
and take mine into yours
I don't want to let go..
Our hearts beat softly
As the dawn rises
The night turns to day before our eyes
Shielding our eyes
We try to ignore the truth
That it's ending..
Let the beats quicken
Even though we know its over
Can we have that moment of belief?
Eyes look out into distance
We let go, closing our eyes
Shaken into the loneliness of forever
Undeterred yet conquered
Hands separate and we stand
