I see lights I see lights nothin but light waitin for sergeant july promised to save my sweet hide brothers and lovers and friends all good things to an end how long will I pretend you're near? I see lights I see lights nothin but light I see light nothin but light

MOONLIGHT and we run from life, from someone I've never had so much fun is it love or a hit and run? oh, but how your eyes shine feel your arm grazing mine hands and fingers intertwine for the moment you are mine between the lines you're mine between the lines DAYLIGHT and we hide from night and our pride I know I am not your bride not on the out or the inside NOON HIGH and we know you can't sew seeds in snow it's time I leave, time I go what can I say that you don't know oh, but how your eyes shine feel you arm grazing mine hands and fingers cross a line for the moment you are mine

sisyphus had all of this a heart, a head, a stone a kiss, a cry, a last goodbye a hunger for his thorn it's been a long time who knows how long? it goes so s l o w murder, blunder, blood and thunder punishment and reward making sense of consequence only leaves him bored it's been a long time can he take much more? what if this is all there is? deep, dependable strife? what if this is happiness? is it less of a life? always steep never quite complete a journey without end there's only time and chafe and grime it rolls back down again it's been a long time do I see him grin?

i am a lion, a lightning bolt i am alive i am an arrow, a narrowing line i am your straightening spine and i can see you the fight in your eyes and i can feel you compromise i am clearing, a nearing shrine the answer just in time i am a preacher a reaching vine growing toward your shine and i can see you the fight in your eyes and i can feel you compromise i am what you've always known breath in blood and the bite in bone knowing that you have all you need you are complete

Rage 05:06
rage in ripples shaking my skin i can feel the beast within once your alice more than a friend i can feel the beast within i can feel the change beautiful and strange my heart, a beating glove fist of hate and love bloating fury stretching me shear beware, i can smell your blood from here i can feel the change beautiful and strange my heart, a beating glove fist of hate of love and all i regret those things i haven't done yet

lost in shadow just out of reach i felt it growing a ripening peach in the night like a window was opened a shaft of light on words left unspoken where? oh where? what do we go from here? the sun is gone the animals disappeared where? where do we go? the beast has come and we have moved too slow i lay in hiding on hand and knee i cry for the river and the river for me both eyes closed hands raised like a steeple i pray in vain a prayer for my people where? oh where? what do we go from here? the sun is gone the animals disappeared where? where do we go? the beast has come and we have moved too slow s l o w
