I've seen the sun set behind a horizon of hips. We kept on kissin & tasted lies upon our lips. The shore was decorated by the wreckage of ships, survivors satisfied thirst by taking their sweat in sips.
The child of earth is an orphan of heaven: cursing his birth and all he's been given. Who is it who watches us from beyond the horizon? Waking up the sun to make sure that he's rising.
I step out into sleep and close my eyes behind me: deep into a dream where nobody can find me. Night is when I close my eyes, but my mind is still awake. Visions got me hypnotized: what my little mind can make.
I stared into my shadow, in there I found a staircase. I took it several levels into my own deep darkness. sought shelter in my shadow, hoping for blindness. Unfortunately my eyes became used to my own darkness.
Look before you leap and pray before you land! It's easy enough to lie if you're not strong enough to stand. You're drawing in concrete with the outline of your hand but a signature by finger is hard to understand.
So grab me by the shoulders and please shake me awake. How long have I been out and how much did I take? The only I've got is the love that I can make. I'm saving all my strength for someone else's sake.
