This is a really rough copy of words that will probably become a song in the near future. Enjoy! Critique, discuss, or do whatever you please. Feedback is welcome. :)
We contemplate leaving all we've ever known
In the dust.
Empty cracks in the sidewalk
Shadow over us
And form darkness where we've always found familiar ground.
Our smiles fade from bright to grey
As we lose ourselves and sell our souls for higher ground.
Crawling, creeping out of the pit we've thrown ourselves into
Our own arrows piercing our hearts
We stagger and fall
But never die.
The prize we reach for
Flows and ebs like water you can't ever grasp
Like sand pouring through invisible cracks
Until we find that something's reaching back for us.
With reckless abandon
From our deepest valleys
And gravity pulls us to the highest mountain peak
Our worlds turned upsidedown.
For a moment in time is forever
But forever is only a moment of time.
