lyrics

Heaven Can Be Replaced

Heaven can be replaced, as a statue be defaced, by a whole and handsome face who is worth saving—worth saving from the storm, from being tattered or being torn, sent back to being born instead of aging. Who could say where my footsteps lead astray? It sure as hell beats anyplace else I’ve stayed.

When the dream of life was young all was a victory to be won, not a nerve meant to be stung by cynicism. For people by design, are faulty and unkind, drinking up your blood like wine with criticism. I’m not sure how these thoughts could bring me doubt, but I think a friend like you could help me figure it out.

A shouting voice drives a wooden stake through my spirit’s drum like shards of glass from a windshield stained in driver’s blood. Are these visions or pressures yet to be released? Or are these shades of raw detail becoming dreams? How will I know between the truth and accident? Is it between my deeds and my intent?

/ Every Reason To

I must remember that pain is its own pleasure. It’s not the will or whether, it’s all in how you measure your friends to whom your indebted, they swear they won’t regret it. Though you know that they have every reason to.

It’s not the time or season, it’s what you make of reason. So strangers to whom I’m bound, please don’t fail me now though I know that you have every reason to, that you have every reason.
