Transparency
drawing life between the lines
in hope someone will see you

Drowning in memory
fighting for the surface
but the reality is, it's a fantasy

Hiding behind the words that bite your tongue
chapped lips, scarred fingertips

Fear in
and of the universe unknown
how can you believe
if you never dare to know

Cobra stripe eyes
those little things I despise

Trapped
on a Ferris wheel
back and forth in the air
can't wait until we fall

Hiding behind the hair in front of your eyes
chipped tooth, flawed lives

Cobra stripe eyes
those itty bitty things I despise
making or breaking the enemy
lightening strikes
darkening the night fall
with generosity

Raindrops fall on my painted face
bloodshed tears fall down, down, down
rosy cheeks on the ground
this massacre of disguise
old life of running
I'm out of my mind
look in my eyes
tell me what you find

Cobra stripe eyes
those liars I despise
