quiet is our music.
its movement in the air is slow.
forgive me if i am silent.
i am uneasy around people i don't know.
i just stopped by to say hello.
i just want to be a good boy.
i just want to stay clean.
i want something closer and warmer than we have been.
you say it's ok.
you tell me everything is fine.
you want to separate my eyes from all the things that they could only see in time.
yet i fall into your arms and my trust for you is blind.
i just want to know life.
you don't know what i mean.
you want the good life.
i am happy and lean.
i just don't know.
look beyond all that is earthly.
you say you can't see how.
suddenly it's cold
and we are naked now.
you are the devil.
i can see that now.
and now this ring of fire around me goes out.
suddenly it's dark, and you hang like a cloud.
and i wonder why i never wondered it out loud.
