Context

sometimes
I write
and I mean what I say
no pretense
no metaphor
no hidden agenda
only the words
themselves as they’re written
letter for letter
and only in context
 
sometimes
they become
more than I wanted
more than just
what I meant them to be
and get lost in a context
I didn’t create
and they forget
what they were
supposed to be

Roar

A whispered breath on a heavy sigh
An echoed prayer meets the sky
A fallen angel rises    
            up to greet the storm
And on the wind I hear
            the words I need and more
 
We’re living on borrowed time
I need Heaven to tell me why
The moment lives carries me high
I watch it rain in your eyes
And then I roar
 
In silence I find the sound of fury
In pain I find the truth I seek
In shadow the light finds me
The rapture of agony and ecstasy
 
We’re living on borrowed time
I need Heaven to tell me why
The moment lives carries me high
I watch it rain in your eyes
And then I roar

Find Me Free

Violent rending of all I believe
My world torn asunder
Desperate escape from this shallow sea
Still the current drags me under
Writhing of a blackened soul
A wretched beast rages
Breaking of a fragile whole
Freedom from these cages
 
Liquid inertia
Unstoppable now
Find me free
Potent regression
Primal the sound
Found in me
 
Mystic the moment that the storm breaks
Chaos in glory reigns
Wicked the howl that the wind makes
Blood freezes in the veins
Interruption of solitude
Lonely company
Echoes of silence breaking through
Steal the will to breathe
 
Liquid inertia
Unstoppable now
Find me free
Potent regression
Primal the sound
Found in me
 
 

Lyrics that never got used.
