Put your heart in place
Assemble your body again
Rise up from the fog

And take
A million pills a day
Vacation from the pain
Wings with which to fall

Don't wait
To recognize my face
Time won't hesitate
It's an ever-spinning ball

The hardest days
Have the mildest ends
But this is only the dawn

There's a sentimental shrapnel that is breaking me in two
Adorned with gems under my skin they're trying to push on through
I could tell you this was easy but you could always tell the truth
So i'll just sit here scratching at the rust

A fearsome freedom fierce with fate
Takes comfort in your mental state
Cracking up under the weight
Of a disappearing yesterday

Hyperbolic metaphor
A shining bullet to absorb
In a meditative cul de sac
The screen door closed behind my back

But it's calling me back

Feels like someone else I know
A familiar place I used to go
A past that isn't easily shown
But i'm falling through it

Anchors aweigh
The rope is frayed
Soon it will break
We're lost and we're saved.

The moon is raw
And it's hanging on
A silver thaw
Has covered my thoughts

The owls have left their morning nests and they're following close behind
And the dark horse has come out to take me away, the dark horse has come out tonight
