one breath
as I sit and smell the flowers
the berries, the very fern that will
excrete this aroma
as I sit at the ferry terminal
with the sky above
my eye moved towards it
I soaked up an image
freeze framed the portrait
an instant
turned into an ocean of eternity
it's Vincent
filled with this emotion
that is burning me
from what I saw before me
needs no explanation
she just riveted my lungs
there was no exhalation
so many questions darted through
my frozen, pondering mind
my interest had arisen
from her fondling spines
and I must confess
that I am so impressed
with the way she strides
and the way she sighs
and the way she glides
with those dreamer's eyes
it's more than just a term
that lies between her thighs

and through these
beer bottle flavours in my life
I see clear what can neighbour
with my slice of bliss
the dormant evil
that awaits in the grunge
only to emerge after
you have taken the plunge
and I don't understand
how a serpent has a heart
while I'm just a man
a merchant with his cart
and all I wanna do is barter
a mere couple of phrases
I admit this is the
clear trouble with gazes
to decode this combination
she's the glitch in my system
from chaos to what is simple
it's the hitch of encryption

it's the pursuit of the chase
it's the fun of the catch
to find that beautiful face
that lies under the latch
when you unlock the mystery
below undercover
you see the simple beauty
in just getting to know one another
it's like my motor
she can just soothe cool
but only a few fools would ever risk it
and look into those pupils
so I pluck my vocal chords
so I can sing to this butterfly
but I can't utter my thoughts
and they reverse to see her flutter by

feel it in your chest
feel it in your heart
I need a place to lay
I need a place to start
if this ain't it, you've been lying all along
'cause the path you made, girl
it only made me strong
'cause I was once a seed that needed
loving from the seasons feeded
off your stream that's bleedin' treason
now I'm a tree breathing freedom
on my bank but you burnt those bridges
so now I stare across
at you pile of bitches

bars, pubs, clubs
freak-nicks, drenched in vampire's blood
but wait, she looks like a nice girl
I'd like to meet her
she seems a little lost though
I'll try and reach her
nah, that's oblivious, don't get involved
she's known to hold
the dice of life and let it roll
oh, I see, a bit of a gambler
I'll grab my cape and a bag of convo'
I think I can handle her
there's stories that she owns
a red light to tell the time
I'm ready to judge a book
from the inside as well as mine
excuse me miss
but as rude as this is
I'd like you to take
this tape I made
'cause my crew's on some shit
and we hit the coffee shop
she's singin' lullabies
we should probably stop
I don't wanna get played
like those other guys
that's why this mix tape
is for you to borrow
and if you dig this shit
here's my number, call me tomorrow

and as the sun fell
and the moon climbed
she went home
locked herself in her room
only to soon find
that music can manipulate
your mind state
and if you use it as a wish
it'll find ways
to blow out all the candles
and know how to handle your mind
hitchhiking near my place
her night was a highlight
listening close was not
what she'd usually do
her ceiling was a skyline
with a beautiful view
there's the vision and
the truth from the booth
see, girl, I told you what
this motherfuckin' music would do
the next day
she was happy as hell
skipping down the block
now she's back to herself
anyone could naturally tell
she's no longer trapped in a well
and the music in her mind
fool, had actually helped
but all it took was a taste
to see those get money motherfuckers
dangling dollars in her face

you punks don't know me
or my eerie feel
I learnt rhythm from ghosts
tapping on the steering wheel
every car ride was like a start
I've got art in my heart, girl
and there seems to be
no light left, my soul is on empty
I'm running out of love
I'm running out of Mud
send me another note
some energized words of wisdom
let me go
to a place of isolated vision
but i'm steering this boat
to uncharted lands
we need to understand
that one part of man
is three parts of the devil
thinking why I can't make
this boiling water settle
a dog alone in his kennel
oh, but wait
you see it's just a dead end
that headless princess could've been
your fuckin' best friend
unsettled by the fact
they don't see the good times
blind as bats to the
future they could find
but it never really does
cease to amaze me
why I scream fuck swamp donkeys
and peace to the ladies
'cause money is a hypnotist
they're dazzled by the lavish shit
you wanna give me a blow job
I'll act like I have to piss
I'm no brick wall
you wanna leave, grab your shit
but don't come back in my life
like "yo, lets have a kiss"
if only through my eyes
you could see the shit
but you can't, oblivious
so go ahead, beat it bitch

feel it in your chest
feel it in your heart
I need a place to lay
I need a place to start
if this ain't it, you've been lying all along
'cause the path you made, girl
it only made me strong
'cause I was once a seed that needed
loving from the seasons feeded
off your stream that's bleedin' treason,
now I'm a tree breathing freedom
on my bank but you burnt those bridges
so now I stare across
at you pile of bitches

alright now, this is the breakdown
here is the setting
alive for 24 years
and already forgetting
what if felt like to be
one-half of her and me
until forcibly, I'll return to 23
never have met, I didn't ever expect
to have crept into a situation
I never will let be something I've left
when I leave, quiet as kept
while the sea parts
the beast starts to speak hearts
I see an artful approach
to convey what I wrote
a thousand times
in my mind with the hope
that for once
people don't just come and go
yeah, I know that I'm supposed
to fly away, in a sunset serenade
while tomorrow cherishes
the memory of today
I stay hollow
this time my back wasn't exposed
to the passing of someone
I never would know
I never would grow, despite the cost
and at the end of the day
I've come to love the loss
and on the off chance
that she falls again
I'm walking backwards
so she still knows who I am

feel it in your chest
feel it in your heart
I need a place to lay
I need a place to start
if this ain't it, you've been lying all along
'cause the path you made, girl
it only made me strong
'cause I was once a seed that needed
loving from the seasons feeded
off your stream that's bleedin' treason
now I'm a tree breathing freedom
on my bank but you burnt those bridges
so now I stare across
at you pile of bitches

feel it in your chest
feel it in your heart
I need a place to lay
I need a place to start
if this ain't it, you've been lying all along
'cause the path you made, girl
it only made me strong
'cause I was once a seed that needed
loving from the seasons feeded
off your stream that's bleedin' treason
now I'm a tree breathing freedom
on my bank but you burnt those bridges
so now I stare across
at you pile of bitches
