Lyrics by Serenity Kane and David Petty.


I never cared too much for speech
Lost in the image and thoughts in-between
No one says just what they mean
A fresh coat of bullshit surrounds everything

And I don't hear it
The point disguised in flattery
It sits beside me
A shadow of who is speaking

I saw the sun touch the sea
The pull of the tide and the sounds on the beach
Left such an impression on me
Every split second holds so many things

As they pass through me
A prism of understanding
Every thought fleeting
Gone before my mouth could speak

In darkness we went from the sea
All the way home my thoughts painted the ceiling
Visions have no sympathy
They are what they are and they don't care for meaning

They twist and bend
Surviving to see their lives end
Spinning helplessly
A thousand years pass before me
