Far beyond this fragile grasp of things I claim to know
Seem clear at first then fade so fast
through fingers slip and do not last
there lies a truth I claim to see in places I daren’t go.
Ears fall deaf when loudest voices call with clarity
Light unexpected blinds my eyes
A fool I’m made, no longer wise
and do despise the things I know that ring most true with me.
So take my words, these thoughts, those deeds and judge me for their worth
For all I am is laid most bare
When in the dark and without care
Return myself to skies above or cold beneath the earth.
