all the houses left behind

Burning down all the houses left behind
fill them up with nothing inside
stare upon the spaces they make
the toll of sadness begins so bleak

control of your days
and shadows cast from your gaze
all who dare meet your frightened stare
and respond without a basis to share

left behind to fight on
left behind to find out why
left behind to keep going
left behind to find out why

Demonic phrases bubble forth
the tide held back
by the walls built inside
pray the deluge doesn’t burst

control of nothingness
and shadows cast from your gaze
all who dare meet your frightened stare
and respond with nary a basis to share

Still to roam the desert chrome
pitted tarnished and so road worn
Still to roam the darkened shores
lapping at the the cliffs of nowhere

I feel dangerous to myself
I feel deadly to the rest
i feel like the words I speak
are a spell cast by wizards breath

I feel self control is just a dream
I feel like the die was cast for me
no one asked me if I was ready
just thrown to the curb and left to stray

Burning down all the houses left behind
fill them up with nothing inside
stare upon the spaces they make
the toll of sadness begins so bleak

WHO WHAT WHERE WHY HOW
are questions of merit
under the guise of a God
who doesn’t care

In darkness done despair
self pity and you quite a pair
Let the light play and dance
for someone else

Let the sweet sounds
of a sunny day wash away
all of the pain
at least for one fine day

then the night
and loneliness come to stay
cuddle up and stab you
right in the face

all the blood coursing
in your veins
belongs to the sadness today
let darkness come so they spake

your head it shakes
your words they say
it’s time to just s top foghting
and lay yourself aside

No no no no NO
I say NO No NO NO
this is WHEN IT CHANGES
this is when I stand up to stay

the darkness comes so easily
the light to cast is struggling
but the brightness fast is always
there inside if but to wait

for another fine sunny day
and one after another following
sure the clouds will come on by
cast a shadow unto I

but always will this sun shine
brighter still than every whine
every fear and every time
I feel like the shadow’s mine

Burning down all the houses left behind
fill them up with nothing inside
stare upon the spaces they make
the toll of sadness began so bleak

It doesn’t have to be
it’s always up to me
Come dare with me
come share with me

the light and joy the future brings
