Just close your eyes, I’ll be alright. In your mind picture butterflies, hollow eyes and lovers’ smiles. I’m fine. In your head just picture monotones, not hollow minds from the inter-zone. Just lie. Lie to your inner self- speaking birds and wishing wells. It’s divine.

 

It’ll be okay, just close your eyes and look away. Walk with me in the sands of time. Beaches of a bitter lie. Put on your drumming shoes. Dream of all the things we do. Swallow pills of sugar thrills. It’s sublime.

 

I’ll bite my tongue ‘til the crimson pours. Dream of nights on a mystic shore with you. See into my fearless eyes. The fearless eyes- my alibi. Lie and lie and veil my cries to hide the pain from you.

 

We’ll run away from these caustic drones. Meet me at the sea, so big and so green. We’ll run away, just you and me.

 

Inside your mind I’ll be alright, just close your eyes. I’ll be fine. In your head just picture broken bones, sailing to the depths alone, with me. 

 

Listen for the drowning sounds. The dead sea pulling them down. We’ll meet up at the Yellowwood, string up lights at the riverboat. Celebrate the death of bones: the pile so white and mystical, to hold our bleeding hearts at bay. Davy Jones will have another soul, another life that he can hold. In my eyes are rainbow skies, dancing trees and dragonflies.

 

It’ll be okay, just close your eyes and look away. Walk with me in the sands of time. Beaches of a bitter lie. Put on your drumming shoes. Dream of all the things we do. Swallow pills of blissful thrills…I’m fine.
