Purple Stare

It makes me wonder
Is there something better?
Better than this
For the both of us
Like deathly charms
And gut wrenches

Is there something better?
Than a hollow shell
Or a purple dream
That comes to nothing
An empty dream
That goes no where

Like movements over sand
Wading through; sinking
Treading water, getting no where
Is there something better?
Than an endless road
With stones and broken glass
Littering side streets

There is a river
Black with death
A distinct smell
Of rotting flesh
Black with death
Black with tar
Going under am I
To the place I know best

Is there something better?
Than an evil eye staring
Straight through your sky
Greeting; Watching
Wondering why
Questioning points on a circle
There are no points
There are no points to answer
On a spinning circle

Air raid shelters formulate
Look for cover
Find some peace
From this world
Look for shelter
Hide your head
Where it hurts
Place it under
Place it under
The railway line
Hide away from
The purple stare
The dream that
Haunts you
End it all on
A dream
Lose it all on
A nightmare
Watch for him
Where he waits
Hide your head
Young girl
Hide your head
Keep it safe
Hide your head
In the place you
Know best
Keep it safe
