Running captive in a greyscale room, I am lost and losing. In moving mirrors I move myself. You falter and grieve, unhinged by the rage unseen. In search of reprieve, designs of death and anguish breed. Aghast I proceed, upon halcyon dreams, despite no respite, no need – upon hell's seat. Through misted windows lies an arcane world, demonic wings unfurl. A voice equivocal, yet luring and dulcet sings softly of ways from here. In moving mirrors I lose myself to memorabilia.
This home drifts the unknown. A hollow house with no beguile, no thought worthwhile. Alone. Drenched to the bone. All medicated smiles abate, but all are wrong. Write the song.

Can a revolution save us all from paralysing greed? Am I rising up to take a fall? A harrowed muse
concedes with the sonic need on which these paranoias feed. Can a revelation save a soul with a memoir of misdeeds? One plea, between the volume racks and the scattered stacks of conceit.

A view of these two worlds from in-between dusk and dawn's seams. This home, a weathered mass of stone unchecked. Untold. To sow in salted lands with rueful hands.
