Hearsay 04:15
lately silence is the most beautiful sound some say it is a virtue, too there is a question of what you done propound but not in doubt is your turpitude hold on, hold on to your heresay & your grudge, they won’t get me down again no sensed contrition, replete with pride face pressed on the window glass eyes closed to the inside in can be proved impossible to hear the lack of sound with every further utterance continues the downward slide hold on, hold on to your heresay & your grudge, they won’t get me down again not as slow as when it was just less unknown like moving faster through the fog but as it cleared bright light appeared & a fitful love was shone on what was left & what never even made the prologue
once was a time you said you'd forever be mine
Lonely Road 04:19
this is a lonely road that i’m walking i’ll be walking to the end or till i’ve had enough no map or stars are gonna guide you like they say, you’ve got to walk it by yourself this is a lonely road that i’m traveling the path is unclear but it’s laid out in front of me i’m not begging, i’m just looking for an offering ...some peace of mind &/or what have you for whiskey this is a lonely road that i’ve been on but i know my sweetheart will be right there at the end for me she’ll be waiting just for to be forgiven for leaving me the life i was left to lead
Wits End 02:16
i was at my wits end wasn't thinking foe or friend maybe another time or face i wasn't thinking foe or friend i worked so hard my smokes got bent words are just words when they are said more than seeds is carried on the breeze a whole sea of grasses bend it seems fine right when you wake up chase them fuzzies out the head how can there still be belief of what's been seen or said what's to grab hold upon when missing meaning it are found in the place between awake and dreaming feet touch the ground take the time before we knew better wasn't laughing then remember the size of his hands wrinkled face turning red
Circle 02:35
do you remember the time when we were up on the hills chasing the sunset that was one of the best times i could remember watching the light go down taking it all in standing in awe not wanting for an end
with a new beginning less ample time to pray everything i know leads from that day another formed original couldn’t have been invented everything i know leading from that day not all of what was given can be returned or doubted everything i know leads from that day the wax taper’s burnt down but it’s still lightening the way everything i know leads unto that day a memory is what remains of future past or present everything i know leads from this day and some things go unrevealed until light strikes it that way everything i know leads from this day
