Story of a Madman

death of a dream
digital witness
birth in reverse
yard too far

fix is here
just in time
walking in slumber

centuries old
cold words
standing still
inside the flame
turned away

story of a madman
high as the light of day
close to the blade
that cuts
the weight
of worth

painted ruins
only lie
until there’s nothing left
to say

better strangers
than one trick ponies
no one knows
show me the way
it could’ve been
I will wait for you
