I can’t overwhelm the wave to write
The ancient’s muse I call the storm
From fragile hips to tightened throat
She gasps and sings to stay afloat

In the morning it all shines grey
A projection of nerves or shame
My ego cannot clear them all
Shadows dance on the wall

Shadows dance on the wall
When the leaves start to fall
Shadows dance on the wall
Shadows on the wall

Cast your eyes into watery pupils of
Engaged hi
If stare enough will I see the truth
Will all my senses flyby (byebye)

When I’m with you I still feel alone
There is little to do in the sadness of time
Move closer and it slows to a crawl
Shadows dance on the wall

Shadows dance on the wall

And she screams
This not how it should be
There are times when you feel alone
But not when you’re with me
What can I do to get you
Out of our own head
Come dance in mind instead
