Lie still to lie
Follow me, turn away
On our way to a place
Time will drop in decay
Give a name to a face
Fore born, fall away
Let the moods have the day
Time drops in decay
Isn’t silence the same as a lie?
Did I ask for anything I wouldn’t give back
But then again
There’s a conversation I’ve denied and let lie
(safe and quiet)
An articulation might remind
(safe inside)
But don’t mention falling, we’re up too high
Remind but don’t mention falling
We’re up to our eyes in reminders of what it could be like were I to write what I’ve in mind
Reminders of why I still lie still and wait until the time’s right
