Jumping off a cliff into instinct, I couldn’t take the reoccurring themes.
I slept at the wheel and I awoke to damages and your note.
“And when the close familiar becomes a distant view, I’ll do everything to help you.”

Caught in the hands of my past,
Telling myself it’s the last time.
Forgone conclusions in full swing,
Just waiting for a second to feel right.

The mile marker lives and I’m past due, how many more of them must I go through?
and how do I define, these clamant signs? Are they Sunday comics, or enemy lines?
When the warning bell rings out again, rest assured I still won’t be ready for it.

I need someone to watch over me.
