I’m Your Everybody Else

One day never
Someday how
Tracing a path
Lose yourself now

Dance a decade
Split a silence
Giving up hope
Self restrained violence

To something else
     We’re going to decide
If we can remember
     If we can hide
To something new
     We’re going to confide
If we can lie
     If we never tried

Open to nothing
Bitterness serene
Truth was hidden
In love so mean

To want of more
     We’re going to derive
If we can forget
     If we can survive
To want of not
     We’re going to strive
If we can believe
     If we’re not alive

Someday ever
One day why
Dreams forsaken
Bleeding the sky

Laugh an anguish
Cry a color
This to be
Ever another
