lyrics

Held at the point of sanctity and something more.
I chose the left hand path.

Sent myself to wander again.
Curiosity teamed with neglect.
So far off from where I meant to stay.
So far off from who I meant to be.
When seclusion is the reason.

Held at the point of compliance and something more.
I chose the left hand path.
Self-persuasion, now infinite.
Bound in effigy to a sensual heaven.

The illusion of comfort.
Portrayed, reflected, distorted.
Inanimate smile begs the question:
When was it last sincere?

Lost in a sunset silhouette.
Wading in empty synthetic beauty.
Left to tiptoe away on the power lines.
I sent myself to wander again,
Just tip toeing away on the power lines.
