Confession

His name is Frankie Slade

He looks out his apartment window

Pondering everything that he

Does not know

 

Yeah, Frankie stares idly

At the traffic choked street

And swallows a second glass of defeat

 

Frankie walks down the stairs

And outside the door

Frankie was always pining

For something more

 

At seven the cars begin

To vanish heading toward invisible homes

Where people live alone

 

Frankie approaches the church

Passing through the thick nighttime ether

Hadn’t felt the flame of flesh in a long time,

Of love and security he knew neither

 

The priest listens quietly

While Frankie bares his soul

The emotions flow and the moment is in control

 

Chorus:

Faraway

They always say

Where the answers lay

Stay away

They always say

Keep your feelings at bay

Frankie only feels free while confessing his sins

Frankie only feels free while confessing his sins

 

His name is Frankie Slade

He stares down upon his work desk

Eyes wide though he never gets

Enough rest

 

Unless he has three glasses of wine

Before bed, but this was OK

That’s what they said

 

Frankie leaves the job

Again failing to ask for her number

His lips quiver with anticipation

Body anticipates the slumber

 

Nightmares are warning signs

He was taught, daydreams are discarded

The solutions are bought

 

Frankie passes by the church

Sweatshirt hood hanging over his eyes

Someone anonymous must have the answer

And time to sort through the lies

 

He rested upon his knee

To say a prayer

And felt the wind sweeping through his jet black hair

 

Chorus:

Faraway

They always say

Where the answers lay

Stay away

They always say

Keep your feelings at bay

 

Frankie only feels free while confessing his sins

Frankie only feels free while confessing his sins
