lyrics

dark barren trees
lifeless or so it seems
the dried up wells and decay-filled smell
tickle the un-pleasantries
the essence of hope
in a land so bleak
a future so uncertain
an endeavour so weak

from the window she envisions
the fantasies of dreams
her mind seeks the space between the bars
to be lost between the stars

through the night
they wait for me
to seek the morning light
there are no days
days without me
now hold me tight while

i lay over the edge
it decays
listening
what did it say
the voices fade

to comprehend the depths she fathom
across the oblique rays of light
forced to obey the fabricated truths
her misfortunes blessed WITH lies
engulfed in lucidity the child of allusion
the lynx and the lion obscured in confusion

so simplistic is the beauty
against her complex wired mind
misguided child grown so dependent
and placed her trust in the hands of those she loved

through the night
they wait for me
to seek the morning light
there are no days
days without me
now hold me tight while

I lay over the edge
it decays
listening
what did it say
the voices fade

there
the source of screams
my helpless father
as in my dreams
buried beneath the sand
he yells
as I grip his hand
my tears pollute the water
forced to watch him die
suffocated beneath the surface
its strength compels my misery

she stands in the fields alluding
and the fire burns her mind
such decrepit frail young beauty
converge with her strife

thick clouds shift and
your wilting stems are drowning
the wretched power of the sea spins the typhoon
to be betrayed by the force of the moon
in the sky
for I can summon the tides

and from my knees
I could see
him watching over me
torn at the seams
I stumble and fall
I breach the fog
