Little Life, Little Death
take me back to the layer cake sky
found at the bench at the end of the world
had brought us there
from The Great Death
buildings are tall, the drugs aren’t weak
I tried to recreate the peace to lose a piece when
blight blissed me behind blister blue light
it kissed me and I thought "this must be it"
endlessly, not infinite
there was a holy mountain by concrete reef
there was a rock I could call my home
there was a home I could call my rock
cuts began to appear, images too sharp
now I walk to find a place with not a single bad memory
and end up in places I can't return to
pumping blood has brought me here
from all your little deaths
that you lived yourself little to die
a death to breathe a breath
that becomes dead to me
I am waiting to be lead
where tragedy seems to lead
has my eyesight just been burnt to light
to find a darker dawn?
not to be confused, or to be confused
every line as much about love as it is about hate
every note as hopeless as it is hopeful
write your words, too personal to relate
during the moments you can't recreate
or would ever want to
"what did I trace on the wall when I wasn’t awake?"
