A reflective incantation


If there's nothing behind the seams
of what the come down used to be
and these whispers aren't as dark as
they once were.

But there's nothing in between the profane and this divinity and these inklings scribble truth
as if it were absurd

When all of those lies
are just curtains for pride
then it's really no shame
so there's nothing to blame

Well there's something coming clean
betwixt the highway and obscurity
and the language spoke has begun to slowly burn

Unabashed dancing queen connecting with infinity
realign what seems a million yards of hurt

When the dreams open wide
form the curtains that hide
and the mystery plain
brings it all home again

So begin again

Begin again

Well who's to say what's not a dream
with the fog obstructing what is seen
and anyway it's all just tangled and obscured

Evanescent emerald sea
the city's pulse the nightmare scene
transmit these feelings beyond the realm of words

When the dreams lick the sides
of the curtains that hide
and when it all goes up in flame
still this golden dream still remains...
