smoke and mirrors

from by the tidal sleep



I rode the path to forgiveness
on a horse rotten to the bones
and in the shallowest moonlight
I lost track of all my goals
but I remembered
not to forget
all the patterns look the same
and our paths will meet again
and life knows how to scare me
when easy things turn heavy
but death can't scare me
death can take me
yeah can you hear me
come and get me
I can't sing about revelation
and I can't give absolution to a sinners soul
I won’t write about salvation
when all I ever wanted was to let go
Yet I am not even close
a constant worried mind
and where our paths should've crossed
I always vanished on time
I am not here to help
nor am I here to free you
I am the bridge that connects
said life all needs and your worst virtues
there’s no point in satisfaction
when you’ve never learned
how it feels to be satisfied
and i've been told that life's a ride
then fucking ride it 'til you die
