a hope beating faster and faster

I heard you reach out from the distance
all the cars crashing inside my head
can we ever go deeper than this true aspect
multiply half a mind and shatter past mistakes
fog pressing under my skin
prevent a million relapses with one disguise
hurt breaking from the mirror in your mind
don’t try to stand around to watch it all fall inside
drive a hundred million miles on the icy shores
not a day left damaged to struggle against
watch the colors forecast a hope beating faster and faster
we shelter the world stuck in isolation

“flags in your eyes”

to witness a loss of betrayal
push up against the freezing colors
a millions lights inside your head
coming too close to the stars
whisper to the back of sleep
speaking endlessly
slipping into another world
I hear them calling
take my aim so far away
noises wake us from slumber
lay down these dreams
hands that hurt to familiarize
take me into paradise
circle the injection coming too close to forgetting

a numbness aching like a gift
press it all too late
running through the wind
I hear you call out like a heat that intensifies through a star
turning back time to find you there
ice breaking at my skin from time to time
I catch you from beyond flying all the flags into your eyes
when you broke into paradise
shout against the memories shaking me down
follow the freedom marching on her back
confusion breaking through my heart
translating every emotion driving me home
color the paper dolls
lock this gift away
don’t consume it all
I think I’m falling too deep
lock my heart away with a key
keep changing past perfection

“words lost in purity”

light up the staircase of her memory
climb with precision catching pictures falling in the dark
all you meant to me is swimming so far away
into so many pieces I am immobilized
fly through the room in procession
losing atmosphere I choose a new way out
to hide away from the night and fall into the light
you stand still breaking clean from every trace of sin
into a new view a million colors crashing from the night
separate confusion from ambition burning deep inside

walking through the streets
faces with half calculated expressions
move free but don’t go away until it all makes sense
stand across cathedral bells and towards the future
a spark to ignite inspiration yearning past school yards
all around we move through comprehension one more time
every emotion falling from the inside
words lost in purity

“numb your fingers”

stumble out of focus burning for new memories
lost again to this silence
press my face against the window to feel time
I lose directions all at once
a value so introspective
they wash away the future with just a glance
secrets burning through the wind
choose all the colors yearning from the light
write down the definitions to fight for your life
pace up and down the trampoline held up by your youth
spin across the wires to numb your fingers from retrospect
I see you through the crowd
you wear so many masks to hide from it all
spitting out a new frequency in blue and green
sit still in this isolation and face the wall
crumple up words on paper until you find truth
I saw you with chemicals in your voice
one more chance to spin across disbelief to make it right

“secrets shatter like plates of glass”

scatter the sky into a million lost pieces
lock myself through the walls
behind every secret you tear apart my daydreams
fascinate to burn against my skin
climb the rollercoaster to withstand ageless color
a crack against my footstep
a wind breaks apart every drop of my last worry
cry out for tomorrow you hold me too deep to understand
secrets shatter like plates of glass
every direction fumbling in the dark
dream of the shipyard where we belong
hands crack behind the color-wheel
drifting through a million voices locked in the wind
will you resist me in the dark?
will you marry me past comprehension?
balloons break into dust
figures start to demand company
clouds start to separate you told me so
to skin a broken trespass
pretend to climb the wall in unity
locked where ambition holds me deep
I want to help you understand
photographs too brittle to touch
all I wish is coming true
all I wish is coming true
children laugh in the dark
grow up in this park
men with cathedral eyes pace the floor
choose the distance but don’t run too far

to ride between the wheels to paint it red

i hear you step out of my mind
all the colors crash in a million different directions
if we were free to trust in this world
play victim through obsessional implications
I hear all your words come true
paint a picture so happily
color the future so bright
ingest a million years with the faith of mankind
memories lost between hope
all the words stream like a car crash
to ride between the wheels to paint it red
look at me with chemical tears
look at me but don’t touch the glass
walk between the ghosts that marry me
in and out of every town shadows drop behind the veil
too blind to see the light
too blind to refocus past every detail
choose objectivity to break the walls down with gold
when a million shapes touch from beyond
we sit still so happily
to ride the sky one more time
to cross every mark of your skin
a dream of solidarity

“rejuvenation”

under the trap door we lose ourselves between chemical lies
all the colors of sadness disappear before creation
faces beyond interpretation to string my values
step to stand still against an emotional wall
dreams pressed so severe you leave me crawling against time
shake my introspection behind street scenes
paint the discoloration of a secondary relapse
push apart the sky with a gift burning for freedom
a skyscraper to dodge secrets buried from time
behind amplification pushing to describe a lost sequence
we need them here too long to understand
outstretch my hands to paint sidewalks because I miss you
lost in the streets to fall victim to sleep deficits
hide away from siren screams
men walk through supermarkets to reveal every moment left alive
you confuse love & morality but wear the same mask
blocked by the only passerby we duck every scene of your march to hold onto their life
We stare across secondary crowds to film seconds disarming from an outburst of rejuvenation
