you think you know who you are
but everyone has a charge
now every act is a desperate move to try to 
reassemble the parts

despite your narrative arc
now all the actors throw sparks
complete your chores while the house is burning down
and you’re afraid of the dark

see truth
refuse to blame

you’re not saying goodbye
you got several seconds left before its time
you’re still saying you’re right
but right and wrong are not options 
resurrection happens when you die

it’s written into the stars
each time fidelity starves
no healer ever could help a wounded life
without first sharing his scars

you think you’ve suffered your part
so calculated and smart
the dreams and visions all point to healing but interpretations an art

only death can bring you life
only death can bring you life

only death can bring us life
only death
the final compromise
