If I reach too high in the 
drifting, dusky sky,
I'd cry a river...raindrops collide 
rapidly from bitter clouds and 
miserable, blue sky 
If I reach too high in the 
drifting, dusky sky,
I'd call and He'll answer my 
supplications in no time...
My heart is entangled with lies 
and distress
I'm still waiting...x2 for God's 
answer...and I keep doubting...
That I'll never be made 
In His image... 
But ill in my carnal-minded 

If I reach too high in the 
drifting, dusky sky,
I'd give in to pilgrimage...and 
sheer wreckage

I'm forever...Waiting...
Forever... Wailing...
In the wild, endless, triumphant sea...
whirling and spinning
And I'm drowning and my opposing team is winning 
With escalating, exquisite ecstasy...
Forever brewing powerful waves 
Of odd, gracious obscurity...

Forever... Weeping...
Forever... Singing...
Dreading for my future
Dreading my end...everything's a 
B     L     U    R      R    RR  RRR     RRRR 
Forever... Peeling...
Forever... reaping...
Forever... Failing...
Forever... Dreaming...

Forever ...  debating...

F a   d    i n    g .    .    .

And He takes

My heart 

my heart
Rips apart...

My heart
Is riding on 
The death cart...
Take heart!
Take heart!
Fear thee not, dear beloved
You'll never be forgotten or 
In my memory...

My heart
has shattered into

And I'm shipped away
To a new world...
Like a pilgrim...
Arriving in America...but I 
wasn't like him
But I still have brought on a 
To be like him...

But my lights
Are starting to
slowly, but surely...
Dim.      .       .

The ship rocks 
In the middle of the sea
And I lose balance...that sucks
Now that would look funny
If someone flashed a photo of it

Take a picture of me tripping
It would last longer
Or forever!
