take this silken riven quilt beneath you.
try these wings and tell me how they feel.
it's not just for jokes anymore.
this is the time to feel everything.

tell me how they feel or don't you want to.
tell me about those days and what you miss so dearly.
tell me about the things that made you remember.

take these wings and fly away.
because i've abandoned all of them.
i was waiting for you to show me up and around
. take me on latch me now. i know the best way out of here. for what i fear is missing.

take our last breathes together.
is this the way home.
forget my name judge me and call me nothing
