i’m alright, i feel fine now this can’t be all there is now concrete ablaze in my mind again head down close my eyes then can’t concentrate, grasp where i am reset patterns travel oceans you may ask me why i can’t say that i tried tried my best, what i thought then i’ve got to begin again you may ask me why i can’t say that i tried don’t you sigh boy don’t you lie boy don’t you cry boy don’t you try boy it’s mind over matter

turn the sky to blue, then split it all to two count off endlessly passivate this fear, thick shields that we bear hold on hold on to dreams of a new place, where fear we can escape the panic exists for… fear of love, resistant of when patterns seem so clear, all color disappears red lined into the thick lines that we create, divide up and abate feel the backdraft to all these small concerns, cover up and burn the panic exists for… fear of love, resistant of just breath, just breath, just try to comprehend over and over seek to fully mend fear of love, resistant of

in the depth of this drain i tried to swim against all the force weighing down, against the wall dispensed either /or sides, either /or times, i want out of this sick mess there will be light, there will be glow at any cost the poison the poison bright green glow sucks us in, we can’t stop staring at the clock they might float, they might fall, never ask what happens after work in the end, thank you friends for keeping us out of the muck we’ll carry on best we can, hands up the poison the poison

all these, your treasures so easy, so magic, so thunderous plight they speak to your pleasures some bones they earn some they speak some they form to us these ourselves no secrets you never rush to save us make me all my own take me close, unknown this was all, only shown pictures from words, pieces come as they’ve always done your work, your blight they’re weak just between us electric dependency opens to urgency windows, no curtains may not part to save us make me all my own take me close, unknown this was all, only shown where is your home? that folds in its faults what is this name? that comes when it calls we find its progress is never serene but we’ve tried to ascend but it fell out of reach

in the foyer, there’s a makeshift home, small voices from inside there’s a fire not seen by all, innocence well don’t ask me, don’t ask me why in the stairway, all that made us bold, fears that didn’t want to stay what will fade and be replaced, it leaves us anyway don’t ask to, don’t ask to try i’ll write their logic down revisit when we’ve forgotten how before we’re told what to trust think before lessons were taught to us in the bedroom, only thoughts now old, things i didn’t need to know to begin again and see what remains, is it all the same don’t try to, don’t try to, don’t ask me why don’t ask me why, don’t ask me why sunlight soaks all our seasons mistakes made for their reasons if we are brave, will we see it all again? if we were “weak”, would it only seem worth it then? we lie in a windowless park searching for a way through the dark if we wake up in the end, would it be the same story again?

here we are we’ve already lost control here we are we’ve already split our soul and the idea it was pointed back at us get it out, let it out you might be holding the last magnolia tree you might be holding the last light i see before the darkness finally gets a hold of me get it out, let it out

when all progress disappears, the path becomes unclear to take from other's backs, then fill up the dirty cracks there needs to be a line, to conquer and divide there needs to be a sign, ask what part of this is mine can’t believe that this is real, who did they have to kill? open doors then watch them close, only shown what should be known frightened by the path we’re on, I had to write it down frightened by the path we’re on, close your eyes and hear this sound come on let me get lost, i gotta find a new path come on let me get lost, i gotta find a new path when all logic starts to bend to reach a bitter end the chaos that we know where the answer’s always no frightened by the path we’re on, i had to write it down frightened by the path we’re on, close your eyes and hear this sound

half a life now a body wrecked worry about mistakes, no time to correct we made it up now that all of this has passed we’re left with asking how it did last we made it up sometimes our bodies rest adrift in snow where they will forever glow we made it up one more round to make it right how i feel the light we made it up to float free with the breeze to take apart everything you see stand sound by day, yet stumble through the night we’ll find the way to one true light all this fear will disappear then resurface for no-one’s heirs we made it up all history will be lost for the prize that we never fought we made it up
