"Very Clearly"

-

The doping down of the little spot in my head

These things that go on upstairs

Only reminds me of what don't go on

__downstairs

But "if you were like" me

You wouldn't know the whole story

And probably wouldn't understand

__nor take to the liking

____anything that goes on

______nor doesn't go on

When the tide breaks

And the walls wash off to the sea

The looking glass tower

__falls underneath

And no one here knows

No, no one can comprehend the madness

__more than you and me

The growing closer

The laughter

And the tears

We know we're too far from each other

But we know we can't do

__without one another

Our lazy days

__strengthen our communication

And the grinding of my teeth

__echoes in thee ears of each other

The more my 'phone rings

__the better I feel

The more the sand sparkles

__the greater the chances

____for a padded walled room

______to be of service

________to a mad man like me

Yet, I know there are no pillows

__on my walls

The hope for a brighter

__wetter tomorrow

____lies with my brain in my hand

And as I look at it

__while I am holding it

____I can let go of all reason

Maybe even sing you to sleep

If only we could be together

__the less crazy we would have to be

And the stars would fall from the skies

Surrounding you and I

As I belch now

I lay my head down

And listen to the music

__that is the choice of us both

Punching my "fists to the post

But" knowing there is no ghost

__in reality

____that can squander the difference

______between pleasure and satisfaction

While I melt my eye sockets

The talking clock looks me in the face

And then the meaning of you in my life

__finally sinks into my heart

And never can I stop loving who you are
