Climax

Spread out
each one then another
until I’m covered.
Orange light
pink was purple night
turned yellow sky.
Gas light
photons on the run
and you have sight.
And you and I
and everyone besides
have seen the light explode across the sky.

I never wanted to need
Never asked to be me
Only wanted to stare
At the beauty behind the scenes
It permeates me
I don’t want to compare
We don’t have to get there
What you ask us to do
is be a slave to our own free time.

I don’t care if I never get out
I don’t care
if all I say
And all I do
Is dead someday
It’s mine in fact
It’s not your own
You’ve got your own
Respect.

And it’s too bad
Your soul was in flight so long
And that it had
Tears along its seams
So I impart to you my friends
The wild tears of my dreams
Sing to me
Sing to me
Sing to me
Sing.
