Someone I could never erase,
Familiar like a past life.

Ones that never truly healed,
Stitches on stitches,
I'll sew these limbs back onto you.

Moved Earth and heaven close enough,
So close the light is blinding,
A million volts crackling,

Hanging up there just out of reach,
A too-ripe fruit rotting on the tree.

All together a scream,
A thousand silent swings,
Still fells the sturdiest tree.

The perfect place to break apart the world,
Strike the heart,
Rotten as it may be.

Its emptiness tugging on me,
Like a childhood basement,
A horror I feel remembering me.

What's sleep within a dream yield?
Dreams in dreams in dreams,
There's no evidence this is real.

This time I'm a good man.

My ugliness is slowly healing,
Rehydrate my inner self,
Watch as my skin fumbles back around me,
A scab on your beautiful memory.

Mr. Dickins killing in the streets,
She'd scream an angel did this to me,
If only she could speak.

As it climbs inside it's cacoon?
Body spent on life attained,
Traded for this tomb.

By the millions she's reaped,
But always just one in her dreams,
The loneliest soul set free.

My mind can get so big,
Finding holes I'd never see,
A machine to fill wherever I dig.

Nevertheless you can take it,
Easy to bruise but impossible to break,
That's why you kept breathing,
That night you fought the waves.

Break it down; find the truth.

Fingers swimming in your hair,
Like snakes in the grass,

Perhaps not from this life,
Now he smiled with her,
And looked straight in her eyes.

With the universe in her eyes,
She washed up on shore,
And walked with the sunrise.

If it saves you pain?

Red, dripping, loose, and ragged,
What has last night left me holding?
Sticky, stained, and empty...

My nature and my machinery,
Perhaps more than any fight left in me,
Vultures just doing the same...

Mirages or a weary face,
Motion or a restless mind,
Dead but too alive...

The ocean and Earth part,
Only the heavens stand over me,

The haze has cleared,
Revealed an angry sea,
The floor coming apart,
Waves tearing up at me.
