Just wrote this up, C4C!!

we exist
and we ignore existence
i have new vision
i cover my eyes
for the nature of life
is what we decide
and so we sleep

and who we think we are
is a lost avatar
imagination's cruel trick
but we embrace it

in our world we see
all we wish could be
but how different our life is
everyday we say
everything is okay
but everyday is leading closer
to our life's end

we're face to face with life
and we live out all the lies
to ourselves, our covered eyes
and we know why
we know why
where will this take us
before we change?
would we care to know?
We're only strays.

Revised it yet again. I really like this piece and I'm really trying to find the best way to deliver it here.

with limited sight
we explore human life
day in and day out
in search of what lies behind

behind it all

alarm set, alarm set quiet
the tide always falls and rises
are we any further down the shoreline?
are we any closer to what we wish our life is?
it is only what we make it
and so we sleep

and who we think we are
is a lost avatar
imagination's cruel trick
but we embrace it

we sow patchwork
over the aging fabric of life
we don't see what's behind it
but how different our life is
everyday we say
everythings okay
but everyday leads closer
to our life's end

we're face to face with life
and we live out all the lies
to ourselves, our covered eyes
and we know why
we know why
where will this take us
before we change?
would we care to know?
We're only strays.
