“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

“engaged to the only part of me”

black & stopped
I hear this face drowning me from the inside
I had a sense of freedom
trapped against the veil
all the voices reaching from the sand
tangled with this memory
can’t get away
can’t disguise my thoughts
I am inept to move past this regret
all the pieces lay against the floor
are you the only one left inside my mind?
can’t redefine it all
don’t we doubt falling through September
a piece of desire
I hurt myself against the mirror
all the days trapped behind silver screens
put apart a piece of all the rest to control my sense of urgency
If you went away to drive past this town
down to pack up my bags
does freedom every last?
stare against the screen
words floating against the sky
you inspire my every existence
to dissolve this ride of passage
to go on this time
all bridges we broke
to repeat the balance
to trap the desire
I’m losing this sound
a game I can’t play
to re-describe… to put it all away
numb my voice of all accusations
run through your town
I hear it all go away
words can’t describe my fate
to pick through the colors
to desaturate the forgiveness
save up my days to where we belonged
only you can make it true
engage my sense
stumble up & down to remember how we met
to get away from where we evolved
don’t tell me where I don’t belong
all the time burning in my head
the only way I can express myself
to dive into the balcony
to push apart every desire
to withstand every day defined
madness broken like a lost forecast
cars drive past every feeling inspired with freedom
stand on top of the buildings where we once belonged
still we smile like strangers
engaged to the only part of me
did you leave me in this place until now?
