Week #17 – Silent Charade

In the moments of silent thought, reflection on those who have left us behind takes me into places where water and fire, earth and air all meet. I am taken by moments that cannot be retrieved, haunted by memories that will not leave…and in those seconds where fear and pain rise up to fight back…it is writing that quells this swelling.

Thank you for listening.

LYRICS

Verse: Bury me down, down by the water
Deep in the ground, dress me up properly
Gather around, and drown in the silent charade

Flickering flashbacks, cut through the quiet
listen to the soundtrack, and trespass through my life
carry me down, down to the water tonight

Chorus:
Hear me im falling asleep
for the last time i’ll keep what I know
And it ‘ll go down with me

Set me on fire, down by the water side
paying a price with a copper coin ferry ride
watch from the banks as the waves
come and take what they like…

Bridge: out of breath, slip away,
cigarette, that you crave
stack the deck but your days they are runnin out
raise a glass, take a drink
have your last one and you think
that your living the life but your grasping at strings
when they break, and you fall,
there’s a way out but its always a little bit harder to see
when your stuck on the inside,
