I laugh, sing then I cry
and in passing moments hope to die.
Honor and pride aside, there is no shame.
A bird glides by
but thinks of it a game.
I know in days he'll end my reign
and I, too tired to ask why?
Sitting still, waiting for the tide to dry
patience erodes yet the divine might of the sight keeps me nice and fine.
Making me realize,
all I need to to fill this abyss that is my lost life,
is the satisfaction derived from the thought of being present in your mind.
You once said that faith was a lie
and that believing in what's right is lame;
making fun of those who train for first place.
Running in your own lane, you always knew your size.
You and I are like a rock and a grain,
like water and the sky. As I drown and sink down you soar high and fly.
Shit but despite my fucking height, You know I try and try
to make you mine and keep you sane.
Even when I know it's wrong to keep your beauty tamed
near the death of my lonely domain with words like fate.
Understand that with this flame ignited by your name
my heart will forever persist in the wretched forsaken shadowy plane.
Please stop straining your eyes
and I'll stop taking the lords name in vein.
Remember we're part of a team that needs no fame.
Still in the night, you'll want your goodnight and goodbye
But it's not the same.
Now a ship passes by
as the bird devours my thigh
and I swear I could finally hear you pray but
it's the whispers of the damn sand and tide
Saying everything will soon be okay.
“everything will be alright”
And then the light fades
and I too begin to fly.
