lyrics

I’ve been replaced by
A ‘love’ (routine), a hope (false), a faith (blind).
Rendered obsolete by
A Fear (foreseen), a void (loss), a mistake (mine)
That only I can see.

A searchlight scours frantically,
Illuminating all that can be shown.
I fear I’ve lost you to the sea,
And no one can ever know.

I’ve been reduced to
Dead (pall) drift (long) wood (lay),
Washed up on the shore
Where cliffs (tall) once (strong) stood (safe),
There’s no sureness anymore.

It’s now been years since I could sleep.
Longing for the second it began.
Still no promises to keep.
I fear that sleep will never come again.

I’ve been robbed of my clarity,
My stone, my mortar, my burning flag.
Tandem possibilities…
I just want my land legs back.

Brick walls gave way to my head,
But righteousness can never warm my bed.

A searchlight scours frantically,
Illuminating all that can be shown.
I fear I’ve lost you to the sea,
And no one can ever know.
