On The Otherside

The evening view reflects a part of me
Somewhere inside the purple clouds a giant sleeps
As I watch them float across a velvet sky
Colored by darkness fading into neon light
Beyond this horizon is a new sunset
As I stand in the day before with old regrets
It can feel like Im wearing my own atmosphere
With my head way up high above the stratosphere
As my fingers trace perfect circles around the moon
And like a moth my soul is drawn to You
Flying around the annulus of electric blue
It's silver lining disconnects my dismal mood
Then it electrifies a dormant life 
Awakening the sleeping giants eyes
Once tired from sorrow they fall away like rain
Flooding my world with only dreams of escape
Now I wander through narrow and winding serpent roads
Through flourishing landscapes, valleys, desserts, and groves
Only trusting heavens brightest stars to be my compass wheel
Driven by my blood and pain, my strength and will
In fear I become more than the man that I am 
Determination gives my life to God and I say Amen
I swear one day I will make it through to the other side
Beyond this horizon and its pretty neon skies
Captivate me by the grace and beauty of a violet sun
Leaving my darkness behind where this new day has begun
