lyrics

sit
silence

that hand on my back
couldn’t bring me comfort
leather, old and cracked
more like death

“be together in the light”
where did that leave me?
quivering, silent
as one without belief
belief in nothing
sadness is solace

life cannot be captured
twenty years
through crippled smiles
how can life cannot be frozen
twenty years
through crippled smiles

in that room life became a palimpsest
their history was revisionist
rewritten in your brother’s guilt
i read the text beneath

i stood and spoke my truth
as best i could
all anyone could do,
given the time

light reflected
in glistening eyes
with drifting stares
full of absence

light refracted
through oily hair
on low-hung heads
full of regret

how can life be filtered
through rushed slides
twenty years
a meaningless song

this is my way
of keeping you alive
this is the way
i keep myself alive
