TBT: Never There (2012)

I have to leave now
I hear him coming through
The darkness
Feed on me through tomorrow
I have to leave regardless
In the darkness

I have to understand
I fear what's not seen
The mystery
You've never seen yesterday
You have to see beyond
The mystery

The Good Nurtured

Take my hand and hold strong
Believe in a chance for survival
The irony is not forgotten
That you were once my rival

Take a chance and hold your own
Believe in a vibrant tomorrow
The paradox is not lost
That you were once my hero

TBT: Capella (1998)

Running in my mind
Is a time I can find
I knew what it meant
To be free

The oversized universe
Used to tell me nothing
A kind of innocence
That let me be me

We always found it funny
How we thought that we knew
What people thought
Of our mortality

And now the sun is rising
Our minds are closing
But we influence everything
Like irregularity

The better half of the human character
Is always left with many doubts
It feels the tension in the decisions that fade
Never says hello, never says goodbye
Always tries to hide the mistakes it never made

The worse half of the human character
Is always asking too many questions
It needs the tension to find reasons to forgive
Always says sorry, always says don’t worry
Always tries to defend the mistakes it outlives

Somewhere between the two halves of darkness
Is always a place for too many choices
Feel the tension in the shame you never forget
Maybe say you were right, maybe say you were wrong
Always try to prevent the mistakes you regret

TBT: Formality (1999)

Footsteps, I cannot hear
A cold, I cannot feel
The sensitivity-
My mind cannot deal

Strain of white
A sorrow, I cannot mend
The functionality-
My kind cannot comprehend

Tears in time
A fear, I cannot control
The immortality-
My hands cannot hold

The Real Ambrosine

Follow your friend
To the beginning
I know it burns
To step into this direction
I will be honest
If you show me courage
And the true spirit
That brings revelation

Follow your heart
That delays comprehension
I know it aches
While love is reeling
I will be purest
If you don’t lie to me
And the real tears
That bring healing

Dedicated to “Therealambrosine”

TBT: Waiting For Freedom (2006)

I was patiently waiting for freedom
And all it would mean for me
There was never a time
I would sacrifice my beliefs
But maybe I'd wish to sing and dance
When I felt like it
(If I had the chance)

I was yearning for the meaning of life
So cleverly disguised for me
But I thought I knew
What it meant to be free
I was never wrong
(You were never wrong)

I always knew it had to be freedom
When I was pleased with me
If I had love
The meaning of trust
So cleverly mundane
And I never search
(I never wandered)

I was patiently waiting for freedom
(But maybe it was waiting for me)

Not Original

I’m not going to go there yet-
Granted how old I am I should start considering
I guess I’m just going to have to wait
Until I’m on the brink of dying

I’m not going to compare myself yet-
Seeing as I’m almost never right
I guess I should just start lying
Until I find motivations with more fight

I’m not going to finish just yet-
Every time my heart sings goodbye
I guess I should learn to appreciate it
Until my emotional moment passes by

TBT: Bye Love (2003)

I know how you feel
You wonder if
It's the only chance
You'll ever get
The only change
You'll always regret

I know how you feel
You wonder if
It's the only way
You'll ever love her
The only day
You'll always remember
