darkness only hangs out in the attic

 

darkness only hangs out in the attic

daily distractions destroy nearly every single thing that once was

where did i go?                      addictions linger and haunt

chipping away at everything that was in different time

in the mind behind these eyes

what kind of reality darkens and looms above thy head?

rain just poured down and left it all for dead

 

the break in the clouds lies just out of reach

one finds comfort in words in a book,  while another finds it in a dissipated look

daily distractions destroy nearly every single thing that once was

where did i go?                      addictions linger and haunt

chipping away at everything that was in different time

in the mind behind these eyes,     dismal nightfall keeps the company

and yet darkness only hangs out in the attic

fool’s paradise

 

jet plane

crawls across the bright blue sky

jet plane

leaving a faint white line behind

we know where you’ve been.

leaving a faint white line behind

it all disappears as you glide  on by

gone,

gone,

gone

 

sunrise

slowly peaks its light into sky’s darkness

sunrise

shine down the warmth on my face.

dancing with clouds high above

shine down the warmth on my face

sunrise till the noonday –   the sunset takes you home

move on,

move on,

moved on,

 

paradise

always thinking it was on an island

paradise

in the garden that was only my mind

made me blind,  i left myself behind –

in the garden that was only my mind

the only paradise i gave blind to and left behind

 

oh!,  jet plane you are gone,

into the sunrise of some other paradise,

and here’s to tomorrow  –  we all must move on –  moving on,

move on
