We are all trapped by understated if not invisible lines
The lines that heroes sing
Or those by which certain phones ring for last times
A line-up of the people that you miss
As long as the lines drawn through names on a list

While waiting for the focus to be changed, lifetimes take shape
And the way you find yourself is the way you formed yourself
Writing letters to yourself in a voice that only silence hears
And the songs you sing yourself will be the ones that set you free
Or those by which you sing yourself to sleep

We will be avenged
And take our nights of swimming
Small bells ringing in our living
It's been made clear that they will not be given

And this will always hurt, but which is worse
A life painted or a life unheard, unspoken?
Intentions without motion?

Believe me
We, one hundredth of one hundredth
Alive where we fit amid death
These are no empty pledges
We are gold
