On life and Death

Before you get too close…

Listen to the sound of the clock

Every part of me is alive

You need… 

Before you get too close…

Go ahead and scream

Scratch at the surface 

Go ahead and bleed 

Find your souls true purpose

Realize that nothing is…

But suddenly can be

Before you get too close…

Take a long look

Stare at the world about you 

Take a deep breathe

Catch a falling leaf

Before you get to close 

Live. 

Tell me what it felt like…

Tell me what to need is like
