The lost silver lining of the thunder cloud

I never knew where this biting and teething was going
just hanging on and never thought calling and crawling
i was staring at the flesh in the ground perfect sounds of perfect down
but what was done to you was done to me to
and it was never that simple to pull me off you
like any first time dagged around fallen behind it
left behind where no one can save us fighting and crowing
standing above those who touched us bleeding
and when the worst is over who will pull who off who dragged down?
what do you say to who?
the bitter words of fools
the air
they can never tell
the fog
spinning
the hurt by all
always revolving
taken back today out of hands pulling me off you
and felt like the first time fallen blinded
where were you needing it? the stage to walk over me?
who saved us from the last time we stood before them and the first was over
lost in this filth again dragging you down
no more science showing trying to drag you down
no more flames ending anywhere caught in webs everytime

the first and only time you fell behind
no time to wait someone has to pull me
and you held on spotlight receeding
sure and strong this circus was given away
faith and yesterday
throwing this ring away?
dazed and phazed
faltered to fall down it ended before and lost completely
standing our ground now
asking is the worst really over
or are we just stuck in this web where no one can save us?
im tired of this carousel
i can hear you say about this place
and your thinking of what they cant tell
