shake my fortitude with secrets buried behind

slipping out of control

face the changes all at once

lost with figures in the dark

pieces out of contrast

swim through the pages broken inside your mind

transcribe eternity like illumination

when the details break every sin away

memorize the faces swept away

is there a chance left on earth?

stir a witness when movements are out of touch

dream behind the control room

a disease lost from focus

when we paint realization with every detail

the paintbrush burning conflicts with imagination

all the sounds inside your head

break every whisper far from doubt

when this movement spies

run past magazine doors

the images ingrained like chemistry

all the faces we disguise

all the emotions buried behind prescription lenses

shake my fortitude with secrets buried behind

photographs lost behind locker room doors

pages turn but they won’t listen

try to grasp control but I am falling

retreat into this world

where lies don’t stick to the wall

tune the radios where dreams can’t be discerned

into the depths fighting in the distance

analyze memories under broken microscopes

grasp the lenses past hidden instinct

weigh madness on uneven scales

half a reaction

half a burning dream

photographs lost behind locker room doors

if we find the key to stop it all

if we rinse away our tears

chain myself up inside this room

eyes that watch, but never speak

colors half mended, half inspected

the words lost inside your head

a secret code repeating through the halls
