Love rests on no foundation.
It is an endless ocean,
with no beginning or end.
a suspended ocean,
riding on a cushion of ancient secrets.
All souls have drowned in it,
and now dwell there.
One drop of that ocean is hope,
and the rest is fear.


See em coming
Neon blue eyes
Hear it humming
Fatal disguise

Fear made into form

Each man to his own
Save me don’t wanna die

A key in stone, this unfound door
A way inside
Manipulate, this sense of self
Just close your eyes
And feel the words, we plant inside
It’s me, not you-
-who turned the dial, who brought this on
And guts your name
Reverse the sun, not two but one
Don’t wanna die
It’s me or you, it’s me or you

SOS now they’re coming up from right side
SOS now they’re coming up from behind
SOS now they’re coming up from left side
SOS or we ain’t goin home tonight


...and the rest is fear.
