#1
I once took a portrait
I left my lense unfocused,
it split my body in two
but kept my features in tact

now worth a thousand words
it has told my story correct
a cleverly clear metaphore
I would never think to erect
you never were quick with a comment
a fact I would always resent
weeding your way through a lie
is something that you'll never perfect


I am, a convict
and I've laid my suspect on you
I hear you're a believer
from people who've never told me the truth


I told you your sun was setting, but you didn't listen to me
I told you your eyes were heavy, and they'd sink if they once saw the sea
more than twice I have given you warning, be prepared for the life you persue
once the skyline is showing the morning, I'll have taken all I could from you


I am, a convict
and I've laid my suspect to you
I hear you're a believer
from people who've never told me the truth
