Stranger


From memories that dropped and lie where they fell,
Comes enormous guilt and blame for myself.
You're the stranger in this land
Hidden behind the foundation
of places angels dare not tread
And the seam is split once again
But you know it's all in my name
The stench that you left here will never go stale.
It breathes with more stiffness than darkness itself.
Because now they’re sleeping and i’m wide awake
With memories that watch me deep from the grave.
Looking down on broken glass, wait until morning.
Pull the shades down there's no time left.
I had something to say so you said
though nothing was spoken of holes in the head.
