You tore yourself away from me without a word.
But, can I find you in this place?
I’ve walked a thousand footsteps,
still no sign of changing ‘scapes.

You were the apple of my eye, but, i’ll never learn.
Can I find you? Or am I trapped inside without a way out?
The soles upon my feet begin to burn.
Am I forced to walk alone forever?

The sky of smog and pools of blood,
cool not the pavement of ash I walk upon this day.
Ten thousand naked bodies;
I’ve seen buried in the ash.

Am I just fodder for the laments of this place?
Or am I to tear apart this earth and find your heart out?
This is the apotheosis of despair.
Please let there be some voice to guide me out of here.

You’re here alone with my by your side.
(But, who are you?)
I’m here to see your fantasies through.
(Please help me find—the one…)
Come along with me and we’ll dance through the night.
(I’ve died…)
You’ve come so far, let me do you right.
(…can’t lose sight.)
Just when you think you’ve had your fill…
(But this—feels better than my fight.)
…They’ll come alive.

You were the apple of my eye, but I’ll never learn.
Please let me rest; slip away and find some comfort here.
The fabric of their flesh feels sensual.
My thoughts do fray into fragments in the void.
