Four years since I left you
And there's no looking back that way again
Decay of a lifetime
Rusted water seeping thru the stain
A pounding in my head
All existence seems to slide against the grain
Still forcing me onward
Backwards thinking looking counting

Pin feathers are slammed against the wall
Spring winds giving way to winter's thrall
Conflicts bottled stale dust
The bricks are closing me inward

Three years with my shadow
Concrete cold caught beneath my weight
Come enter the distance
Come join me in fleeting self-restraint
Why fight reinvention
Why fight getting dragged down into fate
Sun darkening pavement
Linger languish stilted slighted

Two years since I left me
And there's no looking like myself today
No one here seems to know me
No one here seems to care in this masquerade
This porcelain splinter
A warning tale of this veneer portrayed
Pale fragments of myself
Costumes have become my clothing

Wonderful is my life now
and i just don't… need me anymore
Surreptitiously hopeless
Harbored feelings of self betrayal out-poured
Jolting slamming synapses
Binding time until this life I abhor
This road I was building
Layered into walls around me
