they call me the seeker
i've been searching high and low
for a week or so
looking for a golden glow
push it along past mood indigo
what do you do when you get tangled up in blue?
some folks adjust the hue
giving the masses rose colored glasses
and let them take part too
search for the specter in the spectrum
genuine article or a projection?
i observe silently
and i leave the judgement i find
in the back of my mind
not used but not forgotten
it's immunity for the toxin
giving me the proper time
it would take me
to ease my mind
and find a new option
lots of irons, so many fires
clock management until the time expires
utter this list of sacred names
and maybe rekindle the flames
next time around
now you're trapped in an infinite victory lap
so vivid you might as well live it on 11
knowing you know no limit

unlock the door
and I say welcome home
to nobody in particular
God's lonely man needs a listener
so much love to administer
i'm the source material
this well will never run dry
that's despite this isolation
that defies logic
it's a guaranteed promise of improvement
embrace upward movement
while in the midst of a downward spiral
so many years ago I recognized
my love is much more than rank and file
laid out continuous style
i guess it'd stretch just about
a moonlight mile
right down the road
so let's skip the mode
that includes the secret codes
up front we set the rules
the chase won't pause
and cannot conclude
nobody move, nobody get hurt
never wanna be an expert on that
nothing to lose leaves no room for gains
stuck with all of these chains and thangs
like the Ghost of Christmas Past
living in some derivative typecast reality
