The Child With No Name

No space
No time
No love
No pain
No hope
No gain
For the child that remains the same

I was lost inside myself
I was a shadow beneath her
Ever admiring
Ever adoring
So lovely was she
That I wanted to be
Her

No space
No time
No love
No pain
No hope
No gain
For the child that remains the same

Everyday those shadows follow
I could not chase them away
Ever watchful
Ever closer
My memories here
My sorrows there
I cut them with an icy
Blade

No space
No time
No love
No pain
No hope
No gain
For the child that remains the same

But you were like me
Crying out for help
I smiled
And grew a pair
And told you I’d be here
That I would love you then
And

No space
No time
No love
No pain
No hope
No gain
For the child that remains the same

I cast my dream aside
Back when I was young
And stared
And laughed
In the faces of the those around me
Never at their mercy would I be
Again

No space
No time
No love
No pain
No hope
No gain
For the child that remains the same

I wonder if you even know
How little developed into life I am
Haunted
Afraid
I am never alone
Even when I am
You see

No space
No time
No love
No pain
No hope
No gain
For the child that remains the same
I will never be like other girls
Running around so full of pride
Ever flitting
Ever perfect
I am broken but I’m not
What you saw is what you got
Sorry

No space
No time
No love
No pain
No hope
No gain
For the child that remains the same

But do not worry kid
The world will just begin
Again
The same
This is all just some silly game
And in the end you’ll win
Dead

So close your eyes
Come sleep with me
Softly
Quietly
Join me in my changing dream
Never mind the ripping seams
Around you

No space
No time
No love
No pain
No hope
No gain
For the child that remains the same

No hate
No shame
No tears
No fears
For the child with no name…
