“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

“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

“The Color Wheel”

to make me feel again
clutch the atmosphere with this distant voice
memories lost in a criminal world
a mind to out-sharp the distance
burning before desire breaks every inch like brittle determination
stare at all the colors lodging from your back
all the colors of the fortitude
I caught a glimpse of your footstep
to out-shadow… to distrust
the dust of your refusal
a distance they refuse to touch
only in my mind you set me free
locked away for a hundred years
I feel the shadows reach out from the lake
to burn my freedom apart
when time hopes like an epidemic to witness
God at my feet
when you use your device to control my multiplicity
to embrace all my fears at once
to break apart the feeling lost in my heart
to stare at the dust…
when we used to feel in the dark
holes in their memory
when we witness pride
in the mirror’s garden every dream came true
to withstand the beauty to control
to walk across the bridge in magnitude
to color your dreams with mine
to witness the future
more than an obsession
more than an observation
every hour spreading from your wings
when we push all the colors apart
to choose the distance
to lose you forever
I’d rather be alive alone with this memory than to never have known

the color wheel

lost against your heart
the damage to leave so suddenly
all the days paved away in Gold
every hour we have had against the light
every word written in Heaven
I see you in every word broken through glass
like the butterflies stand for freedom
blue the color of your dreams
green every depth of your heartbeat
silver like the words lost in the wind
the calamity of your fortune
to recreate your heart across the sky
everyday of brilliance
written upon the stars
to outshine
to redefine this urgency
apart of the freedom locked behind harbor’s door
to suspend the disbelief written across your eyes
If I could withstand your beauty
trust can only happen now
I hear the sense drifting from your eyes
I hear a million frequencies written across the stars
to make me feel alive
to strike the match into the shadow’s eye
I see all the days define the broken pieces
we stay in this world
every vice determined
you are my fortitude
my final guidepost
to pull apart every secluded dream
a neon circus
I see you break down illuminated doors
to dream away tomorrow
you haunt my every move

“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?

“Paint the Photographs on the Wall”

I’m staring through the window one more time
all the colors press against my heart
Every blue and white shapes the shadows away
all the days gone by
watch the ice strain through the distance
Children push their nets through the streets
Like a circus ring we never have to pretend
The games we used to play
run to whisper through the light
Light up the days
Christmas edges close in the air
when we used to dream in the dark
spark the light against the mismatched distance
everyday when we used to pray differently
if I could hold a difference through your eyes
Shake my lost understanding
I still see the outline against your back
all the bridges we used to break
I watch you paint the photographs on the wall
All the words breaking the shadows away
Colors bleed from you hand
Every part of imagination you persuade
When you used to remind me of the past
I never had to shut my mouth
Now I know the future is here to stay
The children don’t have to hide their words deep inside
If we could start this all over again
Suspend this time forever in our hearts
You make me wonder why
You make me wonder why
Everything that we could ever be
You just make me stronger
Everything that is possible

Like a ghost we walk the streets
I know things are better this time
Burn through the focus and stare against the light
Jump against the air
Doesn’t it feel right this way?
Doesn’t it feel right this way?
Shake the shadows into thin air
If I could feel again
Watch the horses cross the sky
Do they have secrets left to keep?
You never lied to me
I feel so much stronger in this place
I feel so much better
Forget when their words broke the glass against your heart
I know you make my dreams come
