Burnt Offerings

Already burned

Thought you heard

Better late than never

Felt time pour
Like slow concrete

Once formed

Hard escape

Ship is going down

We/re still in chains

Of own devices

It/d be wise

Jump over the side

While there/s time

Meanwhile,

Proud captains

Sittin/ – Mappin/

Charting paths to a fraction

Full of shit

Ain/t sinking with this ship

I was drenched

I was baptized

I was burned

Better off dead

Clawed my way back

No one expects that

A way out this trap

From these vessels

We must walk away

Not from ourselves

From the pain

Consumption & greed

Consuming every need

The ability to see

Into each other

Anything sacred

Anything to believe

Becoming scared

Of myself

This unnatural culling

Caught in time

Operation clandestine

Discovered to be crucified

One way or another

We are woven
Into a design

Being

Vindicated

Being

A revelation

Some indication

To keep moving forward

In the same direction

Those who give advice

Need advised the most

Especially those

Around more skeletons
Than hungry ghosts

A clever trap

These words we say

A loaded gun

Careful with that axe

The way we treat someone

Is the way they start to behave

For us all;
They will pray

While watching us fall

Some just love an underdog

Focus from this fog

Find sanctuary

Come stand with me

It/s all I need

No need for reason

With so much doubt
Let/s make this system
Curse the day
It let us out

Animals subdued
Locked in a cage

Did they really think
We/d come back the same?

Because I change

The world doesn/t change

Its opinion of me

Just have to change

This entire reality

Quantum physics

A lesson in civics

A great return

A long sojourn

A white flag

Another day of the dead

Blank pages we tore

So we could read more

Be again my brother

There is yet one more door
