I have an hour to decide before she gets out of the shower
Woke up today with lights that concretized my actions
My room is missing a sign that tells me which hours were opened or closed and I could pick it a fence surrounding it
We can pretend were back to summer days and it was me who hurt you, it was me who put a sword through
But now its you

Now you’re howling at the moon and I can hear you just as clear, distance is nothing my dear
There’s pine trees and mugs of tea piling on a sink no longer scalding a sunrise of steam
I’ve given you so many names but as desires can never fix this broken bag, new names adhere to you as stamps to a passport do but unfortunately were running out of pages and soon enough we’ll have another border to cross
Morpheus isn’t as kind as he was in the past
He won’t let me into your dreams, he won’t let me in

Now it’s you who isn’t clear and has messed it up for us and I’m trying to figure out but is hard to believe that you were such a thief when I thought you a saint and I would raise hell
Oh I need to protect from my poisoned head but it wasn’t the case
Oh it took just a day for you to forget all that we made and crumble it to dust
Now is my turn to absolve the pain. When I close my eyes I can hear them speak, the room painted turquoise makes me want to be blind
