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

shelf-life

confusion beyond deterioration

looking for hope within

like the tunnels diving deeper inside

change beyond recollection

seams we tear apart with apathy

a clue into your instinct

the right to tranquility

men crash in shopping carts

time lifting from their hands

catching a million photographs in the wind

the bright colors drifting me closer to you

like the chemicals drifting out of sequence

a false analysis like sedimentary angels

when I grip my faith across billboard screens

the sounds lighting the future

colors like emotions re-separate

the time clock spins faster but I am drifting backwards into this chair

all the determination withstands a shelf-life

re-ignite and re-engage the glass of a broken dream

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

Transversal Mistakes

obsession cutting me deep

flip through the pages

ink stains my arms like transversal mistakes

glance through the rearview shutter shake

films scattered across broken memory

desire fueling futility

march like machinery to the distant heartbeat

sunshine realizes its own forecast

drench my feet through submarines

falling to reach your hand

memories submerge counting inside my head

colors behind their madness shake through

dreams manipulated before realization

check the forecast bleeding my insides

repetition strikes too late to understand

like pictures broken inside my hands

pray for a miracle

when I’m not drowning inside

look towards the sky when every dream comes true

to have you in my arms again

is it all pretend?

am I just watching the visions inside my mind?

am I watching something lost at sea

when the boats circle their distance

when we run towards the shore

when every footstep breaks the barrier

every border around your heart

a million birds fly through the sky

like pictures broken inside my hands

scatter them across the ocean

put every piece together

and hope for mankind

jump through the sky like reverse magnetism

sparks fly through the electric wire

like the stillness gone away

chains broken inside

focus on every detail

reward system

when I tear myself through the window

did I catch a piece of your sanity?

pacing up and down this maze

I lock down my heart

To wait for the day

when you can clean the darkest frustration

scrubbing the bruises from my veins

like a batting cage they take their turn

I can see colors burning through the distance

breath in and out

they inhale every secret left inside my mind

a million words are exhaled

but I can’t translate a blind man’s burden

run through this glass covered maze

skin broken to bone

men watch in uniform

they shake the locks with cruelty

shut my eyes with polaroids under every scar

flash every emotion away

their hands shake at they keys

will they unlock the doors?

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
