  • When I see them
    Contemplate if I should
    Should I just reach out and tell you?
    Here I am

    Sitting at home
    With the things that I own
    Watching time fall through the drawn blinds

    They show truth's end
    From leavened clouds and
    Suns that rise on our death beds

    Oh lost my mind
    Oh lost it

    Damp eyes feel them
    Moving bout my kitchen
    Plating our meals for the last dine

    I'll be caught wings across
    Contemplate if I should
    Should I just step out and fall through

    Arms out lifted
    Drawn shades glisten
    Please reach out I have fallen through

    It is a truth
    It is a truth of my crossed view
    And it's for you

    Power of a view
    We are gifted
    We can lift ourselves
    From the depths of a misfit

    Reason caught it's game
    With a mouth of sheer wisdom
    Thought is greater than what is thought of
    To follow is a raped decision

    Power of your view
    You are gifted
    You have lifted me
    From the depths of a misfit

    Disdain met it's game
    Speak the truth and I'll listen
    We are greater than what is above
    What we see
    Is our crossed ambition Writer/s: Austin Tufts, Katherine Lee, Raphaelle Standell Preston, Taylor Bonner Smith
