#1
am i blind to see past
that which wears thin
like a wall, a small divide
between what i am becoming
and i

as i starve, i reach new lands
do these roads lead to life?
or did i pass that ever so long ago
decomposing, deconstructing
in what became an illusion
of life

and yet despite
this ruin growing ever near
i know that you are still here
you will never disappear
and if i could but hold you closer

just living through life
seven day sequence on repeat
tell again of when i came alive
it becomes lost so easily
within everyday life

and yet despite
this ruin growing ever near
you have never been closer
you will never disappear
even as i run away

this corpse throbs again
try the paddles one more time
i'll just stand by, watching
hoping to see myself come alive

and yet despite
this ruin growing ever near
i know that you are still here
you will never disappear
and if i could but hold you closer

and if i could but hold you closer
We're only strays.
