A fresh start has come. Everything is murky before me; nothing is clear behind me.

Twisted visions / Of a life less ordinary

Obscured desires / Bled from a wanton heart

Restless memories / Home to the liar’s chair

Tireless searching / For a past that isn’t there

 

Beleaguered fervour weighs every footstep

The horizon growing distant with each advance

The swelter is on me now.  Egging me on

I melt in the face of my nightmares

They leave a horrid smear on my fantasies

 

Weary calls / From the souls I left behind

Broken melodies / Plucked from an old man’s bones

Tidal cleansing / A flood of confession

Manipulated sentiments / Turning the clocks ahead

 

A fresh start has come

The old veil is swept away in a new light

The lost become forgotten

There is no more running for the horizon

 

The horizon is here

I stand atop its ridge

Everything is murky before me

Nothing is clear behind me
