Here are the lyrics to a song I’ve been working on.
Walking on the surface of a world spinning’ round
Hard to keep your balance as it turns.
Told myself I’d learn to keep me feet on the ground.
But it’s harder than it seems, to realize your dreams.
Swimming in the darkness, there’s a light way up above.
I’m crushed under the pressures of the deep.
I’d do anything, I swear– just give me one more breath of air.
But I’m sinking in my sleep,
Weighed down by the secrets that I keep.
Walking on a surface that is blasted and bare,
We hope to stumble on to holy ground.
“You say it’s vanity?
Don’t quote that book to me.”
But the words hang in the air for a instant.
The words hang in the air…
Don’t it feel strange when events start to arrange
into a pattern that blocks every escape?
I’m only feeling free when I can say goodbye to me
and hello to the moment…
the moment when I wake.
Now I’m walking on the surface of a world that’s not my own.
Swimming in the darkness– I’ve got phosphorescent bones.
In the labyrith I find, I may feel lost, but don’t mind.
And the pressure just holds me together.
The pressure seems to hold me.
