Can you hear me or shall i talk louder?

The brightest light dullened as it rose behind us
the dead of night and my minds eye is open and seeing
i witness my own futility fade in a haze of red

the tide pulled against us as we strode to find ourselves
can you hear me over the sound of our teething stoner brains?
lost in mercy looking into pale faces that remember nothing

i walk in shadow trying to find faith
but all i find are memories of how it should have happened
no map and no sign

darkest thoughts and I’m curious as to where this is all going
we cast our lines far from the shore
but with no bait its little wonder that we catch nothing

i keep on heading out
until i find a blood stained bed
and the feeling I’ve been here before

why do we let ourselves become sheep?
following either those that lie
or those who have no idea how to tell the truth

we can talk to waves all we want
wear the uniform and close our eyes
but the problem is not ours to fix

I’ve taken sharp lines on things like this before
and in my head three lines is all it takes
take that as you will

perhaps my thoughts have worn down the walls of faith
perhaps its already too late
and perhaps storming into the shrill waters of this uncertainty will create enough of a mess

to ask again
Can you hear me over the sound of our teething stoner brains?
lost in mercy looking into pale faces that remember nothing

Can you hear me or shall i talk louder?
