The false light
fills your mind.
Make-belief they’re right,
and you’re the one who’s less than kind.
Dreams fall like autumn rains,
hit the ground and sink away.
No time for changing lanes
when you’re trying to get through each day.
When no one hears,
there’s no truth that cannot be denied.
After exposing you to all your fears
they’ll say they were always on your side.
There’s no way to explain
when mirrors cover every wall.
Watch the rain,
and learn to fall.
walking on hollow ground.
‘Hey, when did you lose your grip?
Your words never even made a sound!’
