In Close Conversation (live performance)

Inside the walls
That collapse outside myself
The drawbridge is lowered
The dragon is waiting

Lanterns, my friends
Stars in the black sky
They are watching us tonight
The ones who are observing

Decisions, violence
Insult and prejudice
I am guilty and convicted
By an invisible jury


Baby, baby
My mine you
Who I wish you were
And me as philosophy
Convenient archetypes
We cannot be
Though we trust
And swear we see

I have an ocean of words
To tell you
I try
But I’m drowning inside
Authentic is beauty and brutality
So we hide
On opposite sides
In close conversation

Just once
I want to truly know one
Chisel through the past together
Like teamwork in a sun shower

To be free
You have to hurt
There are no exits
Because breathing is not a trap

Talk about worlds and illusions
Gods and texts cloaked in shadow
Quench your cosmic thirst with body shock
No matter, we’re still sharing the same ladder
