“enumerate cathedral walls”

i’m at the stoplight trying to remember it all…

before we crash against tomorrow…

Fuel up my insides with disbelief

I hear all the photographs talking about the lost collapse

a million sounds lodging through my brain

fall through the stairs to skin my eyes of sin

One more pinprick to control obscurity like design

shuffling past all the days written in your head

try to imagine a future without recourse

I see the aspiration written across the depth of instability

To conquer a million mountains for you

to withstand the longevity sparkle through your eyes

watch us roll down the hill to burn instinct beyond infinity

walk through time to wash away every ounce of pain

step across monuments with a million lost gifts inside

drive to stand still

enumerate cathedral walls

we watch them describe a piece of faith to amplify every ounce of self control

streetcars chase the sky

step through the broken staircase

faceless values turned around

locked within a trance

colors brittle to the touch

fall through separation

stop apart

don’t wake the dead this time

chemicals spilling from your eyes

lock & turn it apart

like each day chosen before us

men fall from the sky

a paralyzed reaction driven through battle

loose this memory deep in your veins

this situation is endless

houses burning on empty streets

children run towards open bridges when we find a way out

when we paint it in gold

when we write it in silver

when we focus on all the details

situations endless

a feeling left to control

a justification split apart

voices half memorized

a future locked behind the past

a future written in your disguise

pictures adhered between their eyes

transfixed with your true control

yesterday they broke all the walls down inside

alone with degradation

stand behind the rain

try to face to light

every distant past buried behind segregation

capture faces like flags in the dark

this house runs across a million dreams

can’t focus on every detail

stand to listen to every hour

capture my sanity before it dissipates

grow past my youth

stand behind the light

every call hitting me closer

years behind an electric glare

fuel burns through my hands

spark a guide to instinct

every hour inside your head

crush the ghost where none of us belong

run past the traffic lights

wish apart every secret we are yearning for

confusion spins through your spine

i’ve seen you crush your eyes with instability

I saw you break the glass with your eyes

when we start to hesitate I can’t crawl back to the empty spaces

every distant shore that shakes the hours away

do we burn away the time

count every step through the wall

when we kept a million days awake

cross the streetcar

look away & try to believe i’ve seen you shut it apart

i’ve seen you shut it down

break apart every inscription when they guide us further away

a face in the distance where we try to believe

cross the hours away

I imagine their minds in black & white

to redesign every impact to a thoughtless disguise

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

Between The Needle And The Thread

you hold me across the rooftops lost in memory

choices we don’t know why

counting the time left in my head

years wasting away in our youth

on top of the brightest sky

can’t carry the distance

can’t choose the relapse like the needle to the thread

so far away I can’t touch the waves

so far away I can’t find single soul

walking through the sandstorm

remember when the mistakes kept us hidden

remember what breaks me

remember what wakes me

so far divided between the needle and the thread

call the telescopic eyes

washed ashore burning the truth ahead

words bleed with past lives

wasting away in machinery

walking through the train

footsteps creek

a checkmate broken alive

fight for the time

when we face the vessels

capsize a feeling of deterioration

my only time left alive

take the direction

when we take a stance

paralyze this true vision

blindness in ability

a concept detained

scraping the pieces lost from your memory

an aching cutting clean

face regression past instability

thread my sickness like Christmas trees

each light flashes inside your snowstorm

lodged in memory

ingest to face but burn away

determination lost in observation

a checkmate broken alive

blood that doesn’t heal

sweat that doesn’t reflect the damage left in your eyes

memories wish me away

roll down the boulevards

patterns ring with every measure

painting disciples

lost on canvas screens

trace against the rest

march into their wounds

protection cuts me deep

dreams sewn shut

cut off the guard buried from reach

faces we can’t memorize

abilities yet to break into film

every character finds their role

the weight of the arrow

illuminated with every mistake

days absolved

years burned alive

a forecast where we can’t numb time

faces left without an apology

witness men like magicians

look through the crowd

all the people lost on television screens

walk through this shadow

break through the cars

like the figures in the whispering room

counting the time away

when we walk through the streets

cut through this memory

time so translucent

break these paths cutting me away

kick through the wheels

behind microscopic eyes

detection at a point where it all matters

press my hands against your burning heart

all the time slipping away

crumble to madness

deception schemes can’t be found

when we lose imagination

I can’t find you here

all the worn out pieces

when you shoot through window panes

buildings hang so high

run through relapsing voices

images across my mind

don’t erase the polaroids

catch the traffic blur

men march past

flags caught against the distance

a place called home

determination never broken down

witness men like magicians

swim up & down the shores

can’t tell fact from illusion

forget my name in this town
