There's something in the water.

Indigo tears stream down

the face of a father's daughter.

Give you away .

To the darkness of day.

I plead insane.

We stand inside a poisoned place.

An eternal disgrace.

Romeo in black.

Loves many behind your back .

It's my misfortune .

To beg you to stay.

If the longing in a gown

gets caged.

I'll hold my silence

on your wedding day.

The parameters of golden ties.

Release the shrapnel

from the skies.

Two hearts not whole .

Blistered feet from

worn out souls.

Miles of misery on a

essence paved road.

Linger on into the sunset

and disappear

where no one knows.

The vison of constriction

leaves me haunted by

your restriction .

As I tear at the prison conviction

I free your heart

from the hidden friction.

Banner gun

a bullet strays

at the water

With my reflecting face .

As the merry man falters

the spirits float away.

All is saved but grace

beholds another day. There's something in the water. A new smile is born

on the face of a daughter.

As the wheels start turning

his mind slips into madness.

He is in love with his sadness. Electric static muzzle

a missing piece of a puzzle.

Sorry , I failed.

But, someday

you'll be the bride


and unveiled.

Give you away . ..

To another love.


give you away.

Indigo eyes...
