"Atlantis" as written by and Lloyd/young Green....
her lies were waves i floated on
her silence was a blanket
her stare was bitter poison
and with no choice left i drank it
i struggled in her gentle grasp
but couldn't break her hold
each tiny breath betrayed her bidding
i'd obey untold

she scribbled sometimes in her book
and never let me see
i'd sneak up behind her
and she'd close it silently
i waited through the april rains
and thought i heard her say
through the thunder - i'll be here
if you stick around till may

i turned around to see atlantis sinking in the mud
and now the puddles fill with water thicker than my blood
i won't live to see tomorrow i've gotten here too soon
i see the writing is eroding before reading the last rune

her eyes were slivers of the sun
in brightness she grew bolder
she pressed me for my secret
and with no choice left i told her
she struggled in my gentle grasp
but not to break my hold
in rapt anticipation of
what fate had left untold

all day I sit in the sun
see how the damage is done
phone rings, but I'm not the one to run, run, run
