the sound of sirens serenaded like a storm
but i was tongue tied,
too involved and entangled in myself,
i couldn’t let it go
it started out like any other day
we listened to the familiar sound of waves
but then the tide came
it wasted my life away
i watch, i wait and i wither away
god will fill this emptiness in me
there is nothing behind these clouds but aged and lifeless worlds,
save yourself from this
break me free from your tactful chokehold
and let me be, i need to see the world as it is
we’re nothing but victims of evolution;
questioning the floors that hold us in place
won’t you love me when i’m dead?
or will you keep building these walls of stone?
won’t you love me when i’m dead?
because i’m ready to face this burden alone
these wounds were open once, but they’ve gracefully calloused over,
thanks to a diet of sand and negligence
it started out like any other day,
we listened to the familiar sound of waves
but then the tide came....
(it wasted my life away)
i won’t let this go,
she sat, she tarried, she wasted her life away,
waiting but not sure what for.
