Face to Face
Is it late night or early morning, lately I can't even tell the difference. The birds that wake you sing me to sleep. And so I lay here filled with intentions, making notes for shit I won't make happen. I wish that I meant well, but I don't anymore, I am trashed lost and sore. And as we sat here face to face, passive, trying to find my place. Thought you saw, honesty in my eyes, thought I'd reach for the sky. And as we sat here face to face, the world spinned, I was still. Thought you saw, honesty in my eyes, thought I'd reach for the sky. The boundaries I've imposed myself are closing down on me. And I'm pacing, looking for space, but the search is in vein it seems. I'd get seasick if there was too much motion, no premises support my conclusion, but I buy it anyways. And so I lay here with a grin on my face, figurative brick shoes on my feet, and they keep me from moving. And as we sat here face to face, passive, trying to find my place. Thought you saw honesty in my eyes, my leg shaked, and I lied.
