Taking the Fall

back when we were children we didn’t know each others’ names
you were tugging on the sleeve of your momma’s coat, I was playing in the rain
and paintings were hanging on painted walls where the images were fixed
and now they’re moving through the endless speed of light constantly active
“you were a happy child,” everybody says
giving names to all the animals what an imagination
and I was singing songs the records played while you sang so far away
we were moving through the endless speed of light the message was relayed
cause we are meant to be deadlocked in security
where nothing means everything and everything is tied to you and me

now it’s ashes to ashes and dust to dust
I’ve always done what I’ve wanted but now I do what I must
and I must still love you that much has not changed
and as I’m moving through the endless speed of light I lose as I gain
hey, but what am I feeling? it’s invisible but it’s there
you can’t see it, you can’t touch it, it’s just hanging in the air
and that’s how I see you, yeah, that’s how I know your soul
to be moving through the endless speed of light as we give up our control
cause we are meant to be though we’re bound by absurdity
yeah, where nothing means everything
and everything is tied to you and me:
everything, everything, everything, everything
