Escape Introducing: Carl Fraser & Poet Destroyer Oh Paint me a far away horizon Across a tranquil azure sea, Where sits a peaceful deserted island Where no one lives but me Free from prying eyes and greedy lies Free from scars that never heal Let me be free to just be me Instead of someone who isn't real To live out my days giving thanks and praise To my creator in heaven above And leave behind the noise of worldly toys And just bask daily in his love To be stripped of pain by the spirits rain And washed until my robes are clean For I've had enough of my fellowman's company And I'm disgusted by what I've seen So I will step into my painted horizon Framed in a forever state of bliss And I turn back only for a fading glimpse As I blow the world a farewell kiss. Laced by the seas we see, you beg for a life so far Far from all I've dreamed of, tranquil and spirit rain A once false painted paradise, Bliss, a farewell kiss, drowned by old heartache Not knowing where it's coming from Yesterday, I woke up to a new skyline, The horizon, formed by your eyes, Across a tranquil azure sea Far from all existing companies, you stood In front of the ocean - your ocean! Sailing on the calm side of the turquoise sea Stripping back into the innocence you once were A gentleman, caressing the oats in a peaceful state The moon breaking your once trusted mind The silence of heaven heals every scar inside Redemption is a secret we beg for It was always you, someone lost, misguided by love Somebody, I once dreamt of, A dream lost out at sea Calling out for me --- you chose to pray alone Repelled by the world so cold, yet here I stand Alone, on the other side of the farewell kiss For you, I paint a faraway horizon of bliss, my friend Waiting -Dreaming -Escaping --- In another lifetime ~A Poet Destroyer Collaboration~

Hi Linda, another excellent collaboration with Carl. An ocean of words that take us into a dream. The words take us on a journey and both yourself and Carl are on the same journey, singing in harmony, your words painting the canvas of the mind. It is so refreshing to see two totally different styles together and working. This is such a peaceful piece Linda. The great waters of life ever make me feel piece. A seven and into my faves, this collaboration from Carl and yourself....Vlad.

There is no question that we all need to be alone sometimes. There is a lot of good that comes from peaceful meditation when we must deal with this crazy world of ours. We hope some good comes from it.
