Jan 2012
Trapped in between the desert and my home
I revel wandering in the waste land,
Gazing at the stars, teasing the sand between my fingers
With no distractions, its easiest to get lost in the sky

I've observed my own behavior
The lyrics highly predictable
If I can't pursue the desert I should just stay with the familiar
I can't touch you yet so the home will feel it all

If only mortality hadn't doomed us from the start
I'd give every last inch...
So I'll run the other direction
Colder than ice caps, vicious like wolves

The only fool is the one who chased something they already lost once
No regard for others, feelings fully upon the sleeves
Its hard to do that with permanent marks
I swear no other will ever know that side of my heart.
