lyrics

leaned over a moon blue rail
I listened for other voices
am I really alone out here?

footsteps seep from the streets
they adumbrate paths crossed often before
that never left imprints
a history etched to fade, even as my feet fell
the sophistries parade
even as my heart spells
you

I'll run my hand across the graves
long after I've forgotten what was written

the city's pulse ripples
unheard, eyes closed or open
am I really alone out here?

I straighten my back
the wind in the trees is the seismic
screams of immortal machines or the
touch of a lover

no matter where you go
or where you're going
the sky is peeling
these things have a way of showing
but what can I see without feeling
what can I feel without fearing
feeling
