“code them with stars”

weave the stars like every lost parallax

turn my secrets into the fight of my life

I hear you calling

every lost feeling of regret

I hear you catch up to this broken security

every face numbered by time

call out everyday of creation

I see you set them apart

words calling me from the distance

as we step away from this violence

turn every page to withstand the beauty in their eyes

is this the end in your hands?

spin through these photographs

hurry up to watch the distance

people ride across the sky through hospital wards

up & down we can choose our way out

with every glance & every footstep tomorrow comes alive

lost again in the dark

wake up to chain myself against the mirror

it’s not black & white

when they call out from this point of instability

It’s not black & white

when they call to withstand every insecurity

break the world into my heart

take the test to prove a fault for mankind

whisper through the dark

shattering the glass with the weight of a hundred men

run through the boulevards with a million red balloons

break the colors through your hands to break this puzzle apart

a second glance a second chance

code a million stars past every vision

code a million stars to hide the screams in the basement

code a million stars to build this peculiar determination

if we can withstand the days lost inside your head

I see the traces burn through the wind

every color preventing me from standing still

every voice burning from your hands

every sound spliced through your integrity

conversations overused locked inside my head

mark it all against the walls trespassed half-ingested

Did I lose it all to find you coded with stars?

break apart the trains carrying this heavy burden

paint a million pictures in the wind

can’t transpire what you mean to me

every day after the chariots arrive

I can see your smile from this time awake

a bursting light through this vision

capture the brightest memory

everyday growing deeper inside

write a million words into the sand

these visions cling to me

when darkness falls in my eyes

you open up the gates of oblivion

when their words tear me apart

I remember your face

every chemical reaction

every color filtered across the sky

waiting for the day

when you arrive

light the match heads and let them spin through time

every spark of emotion

every smoke screen

every flame

growing higher and higher

when the walls crumble with cathartic exaltation

when you translate the words inside my head

an infinity of locked doors

a million keys in their hands

a shuffle and final breakdown

but you only have the key

you only have the key

you are my wishing well

you are the trust growing stronger

the truth with everlasting definition

break apart the trains carrying this heavy burden

watch them crumble into disbelief
