Done Clocks are ticking Time is running out A rush of blood to the head occurs as I scramble to find reason in this madness I’m lost without you But you don’t seem to care You helped me pick up my broken heart Then you leave me to the wolves to have it shattered once again Only...

During the brief period of time between summer and winter, when the sun began to fade, and the first flurries of snow fell from the clouds, I stepped through the threshold of some mysterious place.   I can’t tell you exactly what day it was, or who led me there, but I can...

Even if God gave me the stars and told me to paint a masterpiece with my only medium being cosmic, and ordered me to paint the most beautiful thing he’s seen, An apology would be conjured in truthful excuse I would say he could surely not expect me to create the greatest thing when already,...
