I've got a broken heart
that will never be the same I promise you 
Every night I see you in my dreams
A piece of me is gone
it fell down to oblivion
I don't know if I'll make it alone
Alone

Composed society a system complex rotten and deformed
Unfettered anger frustration and anguish festering the storm
Putrid blisters of vile memories sobriety castrates the scorn
Impostor hypocrites who pose as friends devour each victims form
Again, again I plunge my pen this cauldron of memories mourned
Unspoken I vent forthright enigmatic in dreams I am reborn
Unbroken, unbent, unwavering, dramatic
I drag along the garden thorn

I search for words Lord knows I try
I sat in my room I sat in my room and cried
It has been so very long since I've seen you
where has the time gone

(chorus)
We were just children playing under a million
stars they were so brilliant
We were resilient to the troubles of the world
living in a world that we were given
We would both just listen to our hearts their beating
She asked are we in love

The memories keep flooding in
We're on a snowy hill we hide just to hold hands again
By the fire place we are telling stories in each others arms
Just two children love is innocent
I can't believe that she that she is gone

If I could trade places I would
I'd lay my life down so you can be with family again
In my memory you will stay
We will be children forever in a warm embrace

(chorus)
We were just children playing under a million
stars they were so brilliant
We were resilient to the troubles of the world
living in a world that we were given
We would both just listen to our hearts their beating
She asked are we in love

I search for words Lord knows I try
I sat in my room I sat in my room and cried

I must say goodbye sweet Karla
sweet Karla goodbye

(chorus)
We were just children playing under a million
stars they were so brilliant
We were resilient to the troubles of the world
living in a world that we were given
We would both just listen to our hearts their beating
She asked are we in love

I wear my heart on my sleeve watch it bleed

So I reach for the sky
I'm so **** tired of the pain I'm feeling deep inside
Love me or we say goodbye

I'm doing the best I can everyday
I can't seem to run fast enough
from this cloud that's following me
How can I let go?
I'm just a kid staring out the window
at the falling rain my broken heart on a lonely road
I got a letter and a pencil
I think your pretty and I miss you
I cant wait to hear your lovely voice on the telephone

(chorus)
How can love be so simple then suddenly it hits you
and you cant seem to breathe or stand on your own
You can shove or your can push through
you can even make an issue
if you don't hold onto love you can be left all alone

Love oh love won't you leave me alone
I feel you in my blood stream
and your crushing every bone
what have you done to me
Your in my dreams
your in my thoughts
and now you are a memory
So I reach for the sky
I'm so **** tired of the pain I'm feeling deep inside
Love me or we say goodbye

(chorus here)

I'm doing the best I can everyday
I can't seem to run fast enough
from this cloud that's following me
How can I let go?
I'm just a kid staring out the window
at the falling rain my broken heart on a lonely road

Strive to be at peace without emotions
Quiet the noise inside your mind

Be still

Be in harmony with life
Do not react to passion

Stay calm

Do not fear loss and death
Pain is a dark cloud

Mediate

Focus on the magnificent energy
Become one with God

There is wonder in this world there is absolute pain
To walk without feet beneath us unheard
To float through winds and treacherous rain
individual identity in a broken frame
Who claims to astral project each word
a frequency sacred geometry game
then deny, defend egotistical blame
Want not for this life in death we gain
Imprint with each breath
our genetic strain

Incremental institution embedded brain damage
pulsating vibrations bare feet underground
Plant trees under sky cover dirt with bandage
rain falls interlocking read loop play twice
Incidental retribution invested gain vantage
human binary freedom inconclusive denied
Structure belief genome disadvantage
artificial omni-sentient intelligent life
The truth you seek is out there
but first you all must die

Observe a masterpiece the lonely relic
foreshadowing judgement eclipsed despair
Hanging disappointed art held ransom
childish tantrum freely shared

Refrain restrain what some condemn
reluctance alleviates anxiety gained
A musical symphony poetic warfare
so let me gently remind you friend

Even at last gasping breath
I am fiercely lethal with my creative pen

Fiddle with your mind so brittle
must I bathe inside the doom
Blah, blah, blah despite my riddle
We are alone inside the womb
All good things we see in dreams
a treasure found in a secret trove
Let us toast the memories
and finally let each other go

Stretched out arms in front of me
I raise my pen of indignation
Insults driven by pain and fury
I shutter over a wounded friend

Locked inside a broken candle
my temper burns the threaded key
Symbols light a fragile mantel
a place to share my poetry

Underneath the starry night
I take flight with no mistake
Bouncing off these walls of darkness
I hope this dream never ends

I hope I never wake
