tapestry

floating in the tapestry of nothing
it has touched your soul with the virus
of overwhelming darkness
i have not forgotten what it feels like
to be engulfed
in the tragic flames of hades
answer me this while you listen to the night sky
scream out it’s resistance
why can’t I
can’t i
look into my own eyes

Oh, This Darkness

blow
the bubble of truth
into the garden
of obscenities
absent though your heart
may be
I cherish the thoughts
that race
into oblivion
darkness floods the
ever present
knowledge of light
flowing steadily
this anti thesis
of eternal water
troublesome and ever present
in the mind
of the believer
this darkness
oh, this darkness
I see into your soul’s eye

Don’t Dare To Sleep

I’ll haunt your dreams, you cannot hide
My dead laughter echoing there
Don’t dare to sleep, don’t close your eyes

In your subconscious I’ll abide
It may be more than you can bear
I’ll haunt your dreams, you cannot hide

I’ll be the ultimate dream guide
Also the ultimate nightmare
Don’t dare to sleep, don’t close your eyes

And now I would like to confide
Your mind is my personal lair
I’ll haunt your dreams, you cannot hide

But since my sense of humor died
Your comfort’s the least of my cares
Don’t dare to sleep, don’t close your eyes

I’ll haunt your dreams, you cannot hide
I will always be lurking there
Don’t dare to sleep, don’t close your eyes

I’ll take your thoughts on a train ride
Don’t whine, don’t say it isn’t fair
I’ll haunt your dreams, you cannot hide

And since my sense of humor died
I’ll haunt your soul for many years
Don’t dare to sleep, don’t close your eyes

And when you look up to the skies
Trying to rely on prayer
I’ll haunt your dreams, you cannot hide

Even when I’ve broken your pride
And going insane is near
Don’t dare to sleep, don’t close your eyes

I’ll always be by your side
Your mind is mine, I do declare
I’ll haunt your dreams, you cannot hide
Don’t dare to sleep, don’t close your eyes

Lost

Three Days Grace Vivo

Anyone who knows me knows this is one of my favorite bands. It’s actually a family favorite-as soon as my brother in law gets his guitar fixed, we are going to do a horribly sung cover of this song (with yours truly singing off key like a beast). Anyway. The following sappy triolet is what I came up with after listening to this song. Enjoy, make fun, whatevs. huzzah!

Losing myself was never so fun
As when I was lost in you
It was precious moments in the sun
Losing myself was never so fun
Where had it all begun
This magical thing called you
Losing myself was never so fun
As when I was lost in you.

Wicked Embrace

This wicked embrace it ties
My hopes and dreams, do they lie
In the blank face of memory
Scream these questions at the sky
Drown the answers in the deep sea
Filled with tears the gods have cried
This wicked embrace, it ties

We hear the dark lullaby
The end of all games draws nigh
The thoughts of one, the thoughts of three
Wherein the giants do sigh
Their oversized hearts filled with glee
Thoughts extinguishing the night
My hopes and dreams, do they lie

The wings of hope, do they fly
The shackles of peace, are they free
My hopes and dreams, do they lie
This wicked embrace, it ties

I was going to post this with audio, but our other computer is broken down at the moment. Boo! I’ll post some audio when we get it fixed. Have a great day all!

Trip on the Chains

Let’s gather and trip on the chains
Pull and tug until we’re free
Scream ’til we’re no longer insane

I’m tired, this knowledge arcane
And the lights have all agreed
Let’s gather and trip on the chains

This silence I cannot refrain
My voice is low and breathy
Scream ’til we’re no longer insane

This confusion is unexplained
Screams surrounded by beauty
Let’s gather and trip on the chains

We gather where drops of love rain
Dancing in puddles of tea
Scream ’til we’re no longer insane

We’ve got to find where freedom reigns
Silence while our souls are cleaned
Let’s gather and trip on the chains
Scream ’til we’re no longer insane
