Burning Through

You've been burned by an open book
The skies went clear and the water opened
I was steered by a rope in stone
The burn marks black with a green horizon

You don't know where you want to go but you will find
People you know will seem more aware and make you decide
But all I can say is that
I have ideas now and I still won't know for awhile

You fell down and kept on dreaming
I tried to take a walk to the other side
We were tied to an open door
So long it's been without pretending

You can go where you want to go but you will find
People you know will stand in the way and make up your mind
But all I see now is
The light at the end of the tunnel is constantly bright

Inspired by a year of living in the shadows of my own mind, hiding behind a cloud of miscontent and pleasure seeking tendencies.
