These old letters from years ago
I felt it was leading to a [?]
[?]
When I wrote this [?]
I may have been finally able to address how it feels

Another brick-red room
Another black-top town
Another misspelled band burning their own houses down
Another pine-box tune to fill the cemetery day
Another star, a touch of orange over purgatory grey
Another void to fill
Just scattered fruitless seed
Another song that runs too long
God knows no one needs
More misguided ghosts, more transparent hands
We'll drop a nickel in our basket and we'll do our riot dance
Beneath another burning sky, behind our parented verses
Scores of catatonic smile-covered assholes in a ship
So throw your pedestal of stone in the forgetful sea
As protection from the paper-thin perfection you project on me
When this repetition ends behind the window shades
A semi-conscious sorrow sleeping in the bed I've made
That most unrestful bed
That most original sin
And you'll say that's what I get when I let ambition win
And I'd hate to let you down so I'll let the waters rise
And drown my dull reflection in the naive expectation in your eyes
Back in a cast bit-part
Back when I felt most free
I had a butcher's heart and no one thought they knew me
So before the regiment resumes
Before the dreaded sun appears
My driver's waiting so let's make one point crystal clear
You see a fraudulent form
I see a shirt design
I'm no savior of yours and you're no friend of mine
You're no friend of mine
You're no friend of mine
I'm no savior of yours, you're no friend of mine
You see a fraudulent form
I see a shirt design
I'm no savior of yours, you're no friend of mine

I see myself in the reflection of people's eyes
Realizing that what they see may not be even close to the image I see of myself
And I hate I might actually be more afraid [?]
I feel like they know the story
I saw a bear floating in the river and thought it was a fur coat
Twelve years ago I stood on the shore
Jumped in and grab the coat
And the river is rushing toward a waterfall
And my friend stood at the shore and shouted
To let go of the coat and swim back to land
I let go of the coat but the coat won't let go of me
In any case please let me know if there's more I can give you
If nothing comes of it, then just know we are grateful
