Chapter III - Washed Away

lyrics

Son, don’t stare across that empty room.
Words lost, tales forgotten,
Unhinge, unsay, undo.
Gone, make up a little story for you,
But wisdom bought with pain
Is never fooled.

I am not afraid,
Flying under the radar, under the skin.
The shadow of each lost day,
Lock it down and beat into its grave.
And I won’t be delayed,
Hope can’t die, ‘cause it’s dead in me,
It’s all burned to ashes,
And the ashes are washed away.

Red, the paint runs down the hand.
Perceptions slurred and stumbled,
Forced to live again.
Night, toss and turn, repent.
The chisel’s gone too far,
But the hammer strikes again.

Familiar walls stare down,
They’re cast in stone.
Again you climb, again you fall.
In desert you still drown
And die alone.
Wait for that day the stone you roll,
It crushes you down.

I am not afraid,
Flying under the radar, under the skin.
The shadow of each lost day,
Lock it down and beat into its grave.
And I won’t be delayed,
Hope can’t die, ‘cause it’s dead in me,
It’s all burned to ashes,
And the ashes are washed away.
