sitting on line

wasting time

oh we’re wasting time

oh we’re wasting our lives

 

sitting alone, cruisin my phone wish I were home

then a man behind me gets to talking and taking and talking

 

seventy three

young and free

didn’t waste no time

got nowhere to go oh I’m

 

nostalgic for times of simplicity

all this isolation were so

vitriolic so cold

 

nostalgic for times of true artistry

thought it was naive but he honestly

called it my old soul

 

just wait in the park

for my day to start until I saw some

one I knew

everyday that is all i would do

 

rock music plays, dancing for days, acid spray haze

what was it like to be alive

when people were still alive

 

nostalgic for times of simplicity

all this isolation were so

vitriolic so cold

 

nostalgic for times of true artistry

thought it was naive but he honestly

called it my old soul

 

with me i’ll keep his stories of

sixties and seventies glory

it hit me i may be an old soul

Mission

I see you in the sun shining on my face

I see you in the stars in my dark lost gaze

I’m not believing

you’re really leaving

I see you in the ice slowly melting away

 

I am graced with your handsome face

in my mind mind mind

I’ll embrace the time to heal with space

let go with time time time

 

I see you in the clouds setting at 5:50

bright red for just a second, a shade you can’t see, isn’t that funny

a statement so strong

then suddenly all gone

did i get too caught up? you were the first to treat me right

 

I am graced with your handsome face

in my mind mind mind

I’ll embrace the time to heal with space

let go with time time time

 

I see you in the sun, see you in the sun

I see you in the sun, see you in the sun

I see you in the sun shining on my face

 

I am graced with your handsome face

in my mind mind mind    

I’ll embrace the time to heal with space

let go with time time time

Vision

a candle’s burning

heat is dripping

we’re mesmerized by its energizing flame

 

tensions rising

not surprising

this day would come and I would succumb to this game

 

we waited for them to leave

like a ticking time bomb

waited in the suspense

 

and then we melted together like wax

is it getting hot in here

tensions built to the climax

blurry vision never felt so clear

 

we melted together as one

it’s more than i could handle

oh baby won’t you hand me a lighter

time to burn another candle

 

we watched the walls dance

we gazed in a trance

we were fascinated by our animated brains

 

we thought we saw christ

we could be sacrificed

we were terrified but we still collided plains

 

your face inches away

like a tick ticking time bomb

touch me in the suspense

 

and then we melted together like wax

is it getting hot in here

tensions built to the climax

blurry vision never felt so clear

 

we melted together as one

it’s more than i could handle

oh baby won’t you hand me a lighter

it’s time to burn another candle

 

I didn’t even kiss you goodbye

i didn’t even say goodnight

but this perfection connection infected me made me dissect my direction

 

we didn’t even sleep in the night

by the time we crashed it was light

and this perfection connection reflected our mystical sexual tension

 

we melted together like wax

is it getting hot

tensions risen

clear blurry vision

so clear, we’re

melting together as one

it’s more than my body can handle

oh baby won’t you hand me a lighter

it’s time to burn time to burn burn another candle
