The sun rises in the west and sets in the east. NO?
But what about the clouds, and the air, and the birds that fly in the air?
What about our children?
We know where thy'll rise,
less not where they'll set.
But when they do set,
will they be proud of what they've done in t...
The clock holds the hours,
and I hold your heart.
Guess I'm a time keeper,
to keep us apart.
It's not like I tried,
but the hands moved on.
Minute behind minute I figured,
What I had with you I lost back in time.
So I turn to you once more,
The little guy feels big inside.
The bigger guy feels weak.
The moonlight dances of his blade.
The blood reaches the sharpest peak.
This mountain tests ability,
This mountain tests insanity.
Now there he is just lying still,
dying on his vanity....
The sun beats down,
bright, in the middle of the night.

as if you were submerged in the Arctic Ocean, paralyzed.

You just have to look at it from a different perspective.
You have to be Your own detective.
Let's not criticize,
but critique with open eyes.
Let's not help,
but aid without guilt.
Let's not walk,
but briskly move.
Let's not follow,
but patiently pursue.
Let's not hear,
but quietly listen.
Let's not shine bright,
but gallantly glisten.
Ha! Ha! Ha!
You'r kidding right?
Blah! Blah! Blah!
I'm hearing lies.
Tell me please, that your joking.
I attempt to swallow,
but there it's lurking.
The empty void where once you were.
Now is empty with a deafening silence. All is still, nothing stirs.
How did it all ge...
