a song i wrote for my band.

Look in these eyes

An entire dimension is destroyed

And the lights fade out into darkness

It’s amazing what you feel

Numb and alive but not in contact at all

Locust (chrs)

Burns holes in my perception in reality

Ingrained their presence within an ending

But where

Do they all come from?

Once they find a way under your skin? (Chrs)

The paints all mix and smother into the color black

But once they begin to fade

They start to contaminate into stains

As pupils dilate

Black holes swallow you words up into dust

Locust (chrs)

Gnaw on my sleep

The nightmares are to frail to feel

Fell them

Crawl under your flesh and feed

And yet they still starve

Look up at the ceiling

Staring in the blankness of the darkness

As thoughts strip away

Naked inside

While smoothing out the wrinkles of time on a sheet of snow

Locust (chrs)

Whereas to start

To the millennium

Where there is no beginning or and end

They fallow

Me in to the lake of shadows

Where I finally drown out and die (chrs)

Look in these eyes

As pupils dilate

Black holes swallow my words up into dust

It’s amazing what I feel

Dead and alive all in unison….
