You’ve lost the witness
The one who made you see
You’ve found the illness
That warped reality

Do you feel it now
Do you hear the crowd
They don’t speak but they plea
Hopeless silent cries

Sleeper, downwind seeker
Disdain preacher
Death-bound creed

Why, why are you surprised?
They cannot see inside
No, you don’t feel them too
How would they know you strayed

You sway and you come again with another tale
If only the truth could match it
You slay the moments that lead to a better way
And cast doubt away
Grey is the forever mask

Doves won’t fly back to you again
Is this all a shadow play
Until we break
Until we ache
Until our deeds see the strings on which they’re hanging
