Resolute: The Absolute To transpire the lines And cross hands in the rain And try to keep those fears away And when love is a lie And thoughts go astray Let’s long for better ways But when memories cast It’s only fondness that lasts And it takes dark thoughts away I want this memory to last But memories are past Onward to brighter days And I remember a thought When we were alone And the path of uncertain ways But I remember that place And the smile on your face- To release the past and distant days But when memories cast It’s only fondness that lasts And it takes dark thoughts away I want this memory to last But memories are past Onward to brighter days Resolute: The Absolute And remember the time When it rained and was grey We tried to love in future days But it was grey that did stay And we never did say The things to chase those fears away But when memories cast It’s only fondness that lasts And it takes dark thoughts away I want this memory to last But memories are past Onward to brighter days Resolute: The Absolute Because if love’s a revolution Then we should take the absolution And learn to love the betrayer And realize our takers

Away, your mind was down by the sea Delicate towers hypnotize me Believe what you believe Tear down that which you can see It’s a cycle of belief Tomorrow’s gone but yesterday You can’t take away from me The morning star fades away Into the mind, into the sea Dancing lovers lost In gardens of decree And our mind leads us off Into the night, into the trees Because your mind It was down by the sea Delicate towers hypnotize me Believe what you believe Tear down that which you can see It’s a cycle of belief Dancing lovers lost In gardens of decree And our mind leads us off Into the night, into the trees

You can look through eyes and still not see Because you got me wrong That’s not me You can recite a story and never learn to tell When it’s from the mind But your eyes have never seen me And through the different layers Of a thousand eyes and stares Because all it really was Was just an oven and some chairs And I can write a poem with the colors of joy But I really just want to reclaim The silence of my world I can paint a picture with a thousand hues and more But I can never really know How love can be a chore And you can write a book with all the stories and more But there’s never enough Because your words they can’t see through me And through the different layers Of a thousand eyes and stares Because all it really was Was just an oven and some chairs And I can write a poem with the colors of joy But I really just want to reclaim The silence of my world Because when I sit at the top of the world Nothing’s ever yours to bare I see your oven and your chairs Your oven and your chairs

You are an instinct Because you’re like the bees And when it comes to knowing you I give my heart- you drain me You burn like fire And combust in a flash If just for an instance And only dust is what lasts Because when it comes to wanting you You give me all and be free And indulgences are through I’ll bare your mark- please take me You are desire You’re like feathers in the trees That float for an instance Falling high and free A consumption of my mind To drown in colors of the past Will truth come clear with time? When the world is large and vast Because when it comes to wanting you You give me all and be free And indulgences are through I’ll bare your mark- please take me You are an instinct Because you’re like the bees And when it comes to knowing you I give my heart- you drain me You burn like fire And combust in a flash If just for an instance And only dust is what lasts Because when it comes to wanting you You give me all and be free And indulgences are through I’ll bare your mark- please take me Please take me

To conjure love To seek the depths To explore is to never rest To guide your hand To sites unknown This love is not our own To cast a spell While you sleep To want what we cannot keep To say goodbye To bid farewell Our hearts have leapt into the deep Because distant power is what it takes And tubes of light lead to this place Spread the flowers and snowflakes Across the depths of seven lakes To transcend our human state To break down our earthen weights Disintegrate what you know Refine the spirit and let it go Because true love is through this gate Beyond our sorrow Beyond our hate Out there you can never know These longings tied to the grounds below Because distant power is what it takes And tubes of light lead to this place Spread the flowers and snowflakes Across the depths of seven lakes

Springs of gold and falls of mist The bitter cold on your fingertips The summer blaze across my chest But I’m in love with the winter’s kiss The sounds of fall and spring’s eclipse The summertime transforms to bliss But it’s the fall that leads to this For my heart longs for that winter’s kiss My heart longs for that winter’s kiss In autumn time our mind’s amiss To only want what comes next And in spring time our hearts are sold But I want a time that’s dark and cold It’s summertime that kills with heat December time is cold and bleak The grey skies all the time My heart yearns for that winter’s prime My heart yearns for that winter’s prime Springs of gold and falls of mist The bitter cold on your fingertips The summer blaze across my chest But I’m in love with the winter’s kiss The sounds of fall and spring’s eclipse The summertime transforms to bliss But it’s the fall that leads to this For my heart longs for that winter’s kiss My heart longs for that winter’s kiss

A little love A life once lost To traverse the path and cause To live between Thoughts of belief For comforts known dark and bleak A little fight For what’s free An evolution through the trees A place that shines Lies over me A lion’s roar drowns out the chimes Because the times they seem to race beneath me Sways beneath trees Falls to this ground of leaves The times they seem to race beneath me Sways beneath trees Falls to this ground of leaves A little loss A small defeat But lessons learned fall at your feet To want to know And not to think To reflect as sweet release And the jumper’s time is on a leaf Above dark waters on their knees Floating on a pond of streets But it’s clear in the depths beneath Because the times they seem to race beneath me Sways beneath trees Falls to this ground of leaves

We exist, so let’s hope, let’s destroy And there are colors within And the cult in the world And only one heart To tear and to mend Like the wings of a black lark Soar to expend And I’m in love I scratch to wear thin For the breather of life must seek to contend And I am that I want to sing death’s abhor For the chaser of bliss must complicate to unfurl And what is lust? On the living room floor And fade into wood panels In a blaze of sorrow’s noise I want to stare Into these eyes of yours And grab at the fog And drink fictitious lore And I’m in love I scratch to wear thin For the breather of life must seek to contend And I am that I want to sing death’s abhor For the chaser of bliss must complicate to unfurl What’s in a fight? When we die from looks that glare To plow and weave the evernight Because we’re all that love compares To taste the salts When our plays act so fare We grab at the walls And when all is lost we sail And I’m in love I scratch to wear thin For the breather of life must seek to contend And I am that I want to sing death’s abhor For the chaser of bliss must complicate to unfurl I want to sing death’s abhor
