Smiles and Tears!

From morning to night I stayed out of sight Didn't recognize I'd become No more than alive I'd barely survive In a word...overrun Won't hear a sound (He's curled into the corner) From my mouth (But still the screen is flickering) I've spent too long (With an endless stream of garbage to) On the inside out (...curse the place) My skin is cold (In a sea of random images) To the human touch (The self-destructing animal) This bleeding heart's (Waiting for the waves to break) Not beating much I murmured a vow of silence and now I don't even hear when I think aloud Extinguished by the light I turn on the night Wear its darkness with an empty smile I'm creeping back to life My nervous system all awry I'm wearing the inside out Look at him now He's paler somehow But he's coming around He's starting to choke It's been so long since he spoke Well he can have the words right from my mouth And with these words I can see Clear through the clouds that covered me Just give it time then speak my name Now we can hear ourselves again I'm holding out (He's standing on the threshold) For the day (Caught in fiery anger) When all the clouds (And hurled into the furnace he'll) Have blown away (...curse the place) I'm with you now (He's torn in all directions) Can speak your name (And still the screen is flickering) Now we can hear (Waiting for the flames to break) Ourselves again

Lembranças da velha cadeira, da ausência e do prazer!
