Intro

D

DYeah I try to write it out, not sFure what I recall I cBan’t tell if it’s memory or stGory telling now DIt happened very quickly but it sFeemed to last for hours And Beverything was crisp and clean till Gall came crashing down So much Efire and debGris that I was nearly blDind with panic, and thBere was no one anywGhere to tuDrn to be saved from the tByranny and cavaGlcade. AndE all use was lGost. And the more that I would struggle, the more that I became entwined And the thickets & the thorns became my flesh and I was vine. Creeping deep into the pavement, breaking ground as I grew fast To the center of the city and up again where I did gasp in the air or the breeze and I was still alive with a start And there were people everywhere to behold and admire And I longed to be one of them and though I was lost I felt familiar with my surroundings, though they didn’t look quite right Like someplace that I had been before, under cover of night. And I found my way by light of day to the center of a crowd and told them I was one of them and begged them for their help. And with stones they took their aim, and I knew I would die at their hands Where I was crowned a heretic to be loathed and set fire and laid upon a pyre of fire And as I cast my eyes to the sky I felt your touch, so gentle and so soothing that I knew I had been saved, but my movements were so labored and my will had been betrayed But my lips they work alone now and to them I am enslaved. And the slightest indiscretions that I made were met with rage And I burned to be free and then you rescued me with your voice and beckoned me beside you and your touch was alive. Sensational and vibrant and with care and your words You say “DSleep it is a stealthy thing, you caFnnot know its plans. You wereB only dreaming, dear, and now hGere with me again.” You aDsk if I’d account to you the spFirit of my night And you Bhanded me this pad and this pGen with which to write. While it’s fEresh in your mGind. Before it gets aDway A GBefore it gets aDway A GBefore it gets aDway A GBefore it gets aDway
