while you were over there
i was over here
same thing but different
you were me in reverse
we walked down the same well-worn path
(more) before we knew the proper direction
so we missed the temporal rift but you know what they say
everything happens for one damn reason or another
maybe one of these days we'll find out
but in the meantime
we float just like we learned
survival instinct kicks in when we need it most
and those rapids can get crazy sometimes
grab on when you need to
and i've got your life-line in sight
and i promise
i won't forget to breathe(less)
The woods were all full of secrets, before we knew any of them. Before we even knew there were secrets to know.
Although didn't we always kind of know there were secrets? Didn't we always? We just didn't have any idea what they were.
We still don't(more) know most of the secrets. We've learned a couple of them. We've learned enough to be more sure that there's a lot going on. A lot to be afraid of, even. A lot to be nervous about, or worried about, or at least cautious around. Maybe not cautious, exactly. But something.(less)
Before we knew what was happening, I was hanging by my fingertips over about a billion miles of empty sky, my buddy and his parachute were dwindling into an invisible speck somewhere below me, and the chicks were whooping like banshees.
(more) What's wrong with being boring? I LIKE being boring!(less)
