Wake from a ghost and savor the sun
Late today I was in a cave swallowed
Hanging on for heaven’s sake I forgot to let go

On my way,
I flow over yesterdays
Conscious streams
Hovering around halos

Mirrors show a thousand faces of the ghost
Hanging from the family tree

In the sway of those
revolving yesterdays
Conscience strains
Plundering, the prowl of halos

Awake the ghosts
Shadows in the smoke
The grinding gears that turn in your repose
Haunting slumbers of seemingly silent nights

Reflections of you and me
force-feeding the same disease
Enrapturing, the fantasy is believed

Shadows in the smoke
have wrangled in a host
The grinding gears have since laid in repose
to be the ghosts of seemingly silent nights
