cynical, that belies something.
your disappointment betrays a belief-
you had hoped for better...haven't we all?
...hoped for better, and you will never get over that.
it is in layers that we cover the past's pain,
layers of lesser or greater pain.
sometimes it's hard to remember
what I was running from then.
sometimes it's hard to remember what led me...
to what chases me now
maybe something happened somewhere,
and you weren't there.
maybe we could build something,
but you're just too smart to care.
don't you want your silence to be heard?
you've always had the flesh, now find the words
don't be absurd...
it is in layers that we cover the past's pain,
layers of lesser or greater pain.
sometimes it's hard to remember
what I was running from then.
sometimes it's hard to remember what led me...
to what changes me now.
god damn it all, god damn it all,
you don't believe, and I can't even blame you at all
so through it all, through it all,
you never let them know.
