My eyes fade as the attention
to regression and oppression
take the stage
and once again we are alone.

This crowded room seems so empty
as I dream of
nothing more than a time without
the crime of rich men feasting
behind closed doors.

(When your sonnet falls short what will you do?)

These words just
(When your sonnet falls short)
bled from me
(what will you do?)
as you quitely fell.

And all this time
we fell in line.
We only saw
what we were shown.

And our faith has been broken
like the bottles we drain
to drown our pain.

I see pattern
and adjust in slow motion.
In unison they turn away like silhouettes
of marrionettes.

There has to be another way to kill the night.
Another way to kill a question found in hindsight.
If only we had been there,
if only we had known.
This party might as well have been a gun fight,
the looks and glances kill romances before they could find light.
We only ever saw what we were shown.

There has to be another way to kill the night.
Another way to kill a question found in hindsight.
If only we had been there,
if only we had known.
This party might as well have been a gun fight,
the looks and glances kill romances before they could find light.
We only ever saw what we were shown.
(What we were shown.)

(We only saw what we were shown!)

These words just
(When your sonnet falls short)
bled from me
(what will you do?)
as you quitely fell.

Your actions
(When your sonnet falls short)
condemned you.
(what will you do?)
This won't end well.

These words just
(When your sonnet falls short!)
bled from me
(what will you do?!)
as you quitely fell.
