As much as I let something go,
it never really leaves me.
I want to believe I’m moving on
but I found myself sitting in the
shower again thinking that I
I can wash my hands thirty
times a day and still find dirt
under my fingernails.

Key Entity Extraction V: Sentry The Defiant

Coheed and Cambria

But something deep inside pushes us off into another directions beside ourselves; and it is, truth be told, heartbreaking. But you can’t live to waste away, and you can’t return your time. That’s the trouble with it. We develop so much baggage over the course of our years and relationships that we become this big mess of insecurities and sadness. You can’t fix things. Things are just things.

If you could banish the fear of death from men’s hearts they wouldn’t live a day. Who would want this nightmare, if not for fear of the next? The shadow of the axe hangs over every joy. Every road ends in death, or worse. Every friendship. Every love. Torment, betrayal, loss, suffering, pain, age, indignity, and hideous lingering illness. All with a single conclusion.… The truth is that that the forms I see have been slowly emptied out. They no longer have any content. They are shapes only. A train, a wall, a world, or a man. A thing dangling in senseless articulation in a howling void. Why would I continue to seek the company of such a thing?

Setting sun can’t shine, now you’re gone
Inside sleeping, my heart beating
You know that you tried to hide it
Couldn’t you have said what you meant? Oh…

Time heals, time congeals around us
Endless hours of wasted moments
Understanding, not demanding
Your eyes tell what you feel inside

Setting sun can’t shine, now you’re gone
Inside sleeping, my heart beating
You know that you tried to hide it
Shouldn’t you have said what you meant?

YOU LIED!

Humble and helpless
Learning to pray
Praying for visions
to Show me the way
Show me the way to forgive you
Allow me to let it go
Allow me to be forgiven
Show me the way to let go
Show me the way to forgive you
Allow me to let it go
Allow me to be forgiven
Show me the way to let go

Illuminate me,
Illuminate me,
Illuminate me,
I’m just praying for you to show me
Where I’m to begin

Hoping to
Hoping to reconnect to you..

20 more months, and 23 days.

Then I’ll have the answer I will have waited a quarter of a century for. It really is too bad that they don’t know they are being tested. They might behave differently. That, of course, would change this test and its purpose. I hope for the result that the source might yet be capable of engendering, please, please I beg you of importune- Prove me wrong in this.

Moving in and out of the shadows.
It’s no easy mission,
Holding on to how I picture you.
Showing only bits and pieces,
Till the tide betrays you,
And your empty elocution.

Searching your eyes for a hint or a trace of humility.
Searching your eyes for the saint is an act of futility.
Searching your eyes for a hint or a trace of it.
Searching your eyes for humility.
Searching your eyes for a hint or a trace,
I’m still searching, searching.

Showing only bits and pieces,
Till the light betrays you,
And your empty elocution.

Rode the Piper by and down the river.
Carcass crippled underneath,
The pounding waves of adoration.

Pied Piper float on down the river.
Bloated carcass, crippled knee,
The weight of adoration.
Moving in and out of the shadows.

It’s no easy mission,
Holding on to how I picture you.

We met at the wrong time. That’s what I keep telling myself anyway. Maybe one day years from now, we’ll meet in a coffee shop in a far away city somewhere and we could give it another shot.

Universe…

By whatever means you operate within, in this capacity-

Grant me the strength of mind and spirit to give up the blind nature of certainty.
