I want to come home fast and “Sit With You!” It doesn’t matter if we don’t have “Sh_t To Do!” Who I love to end my day with? “It is You!” Dine and spend time forever “With My Boo!” I can’t think of no one better..”Just Us Two!”
In the kingdom of the lost, The one who is found Still doesn't have a home. In the crowd of people I saw, The one who knew everyone Was the person who felt the most alone. As they call anyone for help, Perpetuating back only dial tone.
Some entangle themselves in abuse Misreading love for a noose Until they have the courage to cut through Too late to know who they are anymore, Blank shells falling to the floor With a final shot to their body, no more. One final shot and she's gone.
In the kingdom of the blind, The one eyed man isn't king. He sits on that throne wondering If he's the only one who doesn't see. Crying out through his days Wishing to understand the beautiful things Unknown to only he.
If I was to dream of angels, Do you think they'd dream of me? If I hoped one day of flight, Would one offer me it's wings? Could I fly like Peter Pan from where I stand Pixie dust, believe, and never land? In Neverland, the sands of time would surely stop Would that be the world I've sought?
If I was to dream of something special, I'd only want it special to me. Where each the other saw oysters, I would see pearls with perfect flaws Enthralled in a find, I let just be mine Never speaking of what made in shine.
If I was to live in this world to old age, That's silly to think or speak Because I've had it been told, old dogs, They aren't made for the weak. But if I did make it, somehow statistically faked it. I would sit out in the world and just breath.
Your words reel me in Gently So gently that I don’t even know I’m moving toward you Away from familiar waters Until I’m staring into the deepest blue Unable to steady my thoughts Here Thoughts swirl in the whirlpool that is you Just like that You let out your line The one that has me hooked Give me slack Let me drift away from you Just until I’m swimming freely Away from thoughts of you But then There it is The tug from you again Swiftly I am pulled toward you Praying you will reel me in this time And decide I’m Worthy Decide I’m your catch
This morning I woke up feeling lonely. I don’t know why. I have people around me who love me and want to hold on to me and I onto them. I know… feelings like this and dreams fly and soon evaporate into the cloudy sky.
But today some dark critter a residue of the night has hooked me and won’t let go it has reeled me in so here I am using these lines to cast my mind out into the choppy waters to see if I can connect with something swimming there that’ll make sense of this tenuous mess in which I wander and wallow.
I don’t seem to find my self comfortable, wholly accepted and at home with the people and places I roam in this soaked and leaky vessel. I know it’s stupid to be out here floating when songs and words I’m often quoting drift inside my head planted there by many magnificent progenitors who earnestly bred a young man for whom they cared.
But loneliness does that. It puts me where I know I shouldn’t be by all grateful accounts.
I think to myself I wish so and so was here to talk but they’ve long gone and walked from me who has lived so long.
So here I am alone casting out or in to find the answer, a home or a place of some special grace… while I sit here with these lines in this lonely state.
