watch a million spirits cross the skies

A Million Words lost in the Cell

I watched you fall apart behind every second

whisper this world away

press the questions like damage

was I wrong to make things right?

all this time burning away

gauge the glimpse of this light

the pressure is too thick to control

break this silence apart

losing every color in the dark

you can’t break these balloons around my heart

to feel this emotion too deep

to feel this emotion like a chemical control

start all the days over in my mind

mistakes like dancers in the dark

if the light doesn’t shine today

let it burn me apart tomorrow

am I always wrong to choose different directions to get us apart?

one day they will rise to Heaven

like concealer to hide the black and blue away

like concealer to turn this world apart

shake this feeling to the ground

laugh again tomorrow

soldiers hear tomorrow

it hits them to the ground

in observation we pray for a new day of forgiveness

if yesterday doesn’t tell a story

someday we will march across the skies

everyday to define my faith

if time doesn’t answer me past the gates to prescribe the adoration

I can’t numb away the days lost

spin around this maze like a million pieces of doubt falling from my eyes

reflect the mirrors to break through the distance

a million voices gaining ground through the distance

to perfect the colors against the wall

I have seen the shadows spin through your heart

close their eyes to remember

television screens paint a true glimpse of tomorrow

pray for the days to absolve these sins locked in my heart

watch a million spirits cross the skies

chase the scarecrow to pin his wings

I felt winter drop across your eyes

when we turn the pages and try to forget

is it everything I try to feel at once?

I start to stare across faces lost against the window

shake their hands over and over to remember it all

never try to realize we pretend too far

never try to realize it is all a disguise

I am shopping through yesterday trying to remember my name

stand like a ghost for days

burning time like angels

look across a million reflections but I can only see you

playing chessmen to win it all

but I lose my game for you

I lose my game for you

what words can I say

every hallow reaction numbed by time

impossible dreams I can’t realize

lose my doubts  from this crime scene

paint a million faces to color their days away

submerge all the thoughts holding me from falling

every discovery in the dark

turn to control this vice

fading against time every color I can’t feel

sickness slipping through my skin

every creation lost in my mind

build a million sandcastles to withstand my days

unlock a million puzzles to lose illusion one more time

turn against my true instinct

an Alter for every sin

a fortune controlled by filters in a cage

redesign the loss to win it all

reevaluate every impact gone wrong

hear a million voices through this room

every amplification to escape

overcompensate this hidden values

I saw you laughing in the dark

every substance I can’t feel

try to categorize every emotion and paint it through the wall

lock away every insecurity

a million keys spinning through your head

to break the lock against my heart

they are lost in the field to hunt their eyes

we look inside for doubts

witness every reaction to distinguish each crime

chase the scarecrow to pin his wings

reward system

when I tear myself through the window

did I catch a piece of your sanity?

pacing up and down this maze

I lock down my heart

To wait for the day

when you can clean the darkest frustration

scrubbing the bruises from my veins

like a batting cage they take their turn

I can see colors burning through the distance

breath in and out

they inhale every secret left inside my mind

a million words are exhaled

but I can’t translate a blind man’s burden

run through this glass covered maze

skin broken to bone

men watch in uniform

they shake the locks with cruelty

shut my eyes with polaroids under every scar

flash every emotion away

their hands shake at they keys

will they unlock the doors?
