keep all your eyes open and i'll keep hoping
that you and i might witness lovelight for a moment
own it
keep it like a secret that we once told one another in passing
this is my passion
and it was fashioned from well meaning intentions
inventions that may not be made out of necessity
motherless children ready and willing to sacrifice
lay it all on the line
i love life and there's only one kind worth living
left to my own devices
i could be the true definition of niceness
cool in these times of crisis
thousand yard stare receiver
a true believer
check out my unconditional original composition
about loving the individual for all time

are your eyes still open?
i'm still hoping for a chance
opportunity to advance and receive balance
A alike B alike is how we'll be alike
on some old 'wouldn't it be nice if we were older?'
wouldn't it be nice if we didn't have this weight to shoulder?
another loss and my heart turns colder
could it be the reason that i front?
wrap up my problems in a blunt?
watch it dissipate?
recognize my moment of truth and hesitate?
i recognize the fact these thoughts can resonate
in ways i couldn't even imagine
it could even happen to you
it's no anomaly
people are talking and it pops up commonly in conversation
read between the lines
or better yet listen
and you'll hear it every time

the black saint and the sinner lady
maybe got a little too close for comfort
and started to wonder what would happen if we're strapping in together
maybe we could weather the storm
perhaps perform a small miracle
spherical relation
full circle in suspended animation
it was my imagination running away without me
'cause it doesn't care about me
maybe it teaches me i stand too proudly
that i should allow things to flow and then go with it
forget about cool calculations
micromanaging every single situation
the sound of live alliteration
history in repetition simple as long division
that's why it never works out in the head
and chooses other means instead
mostly time
