That is where I hope to fly
For you have gone where I cannot reach
A place only dreams can breach
But I know we will meet again
Because the end is never permanent
EscapesAcross this heartland scars do run
That is why exists my dreamscape
Tell me love, do I burn like the sun?
Hold me while the light is fleeting
Across this dreamscape I take flight
Straying my thoughts from reality
Tell me love, am I cold as the night?
Touch me while the dawn is breaking
Between these two I wander lost
Unknown for what I'm truly yearning
Help me love, I'm fading like the stars
Keep me while the world is turning
And we will burnThe words are like fire in my heart and my throat burns as I give them voice.
A solemn apology to a grander time when you, a handsome outsider, called my home interesting.
You left earthquakes in your wake and I promise you they will remain.
Although fate does not have our goals at heart, know that I would defy the universe for you.
How I miss the days when we watched the lights dance just under the void.
Gone are the times where what I called normal had you grinning like a fool and praising the nature of existence.
I know that where you are is far away, yet I also know there is a door waiting for you to find it.
For the first time in so long I am allowed to speak the truth and oh it burns.
Fire is a potent weapon and also a symbol of hope.
To do both for the only place I have ever called home, I set my vocal chords alight.
A solemn apology to grander times long past.
Times never to return.
A thousand “I'm sorry”s to future promises broken.
Goodbyes never given.
OcarinaTell me the days
Show me the nights
Bring me back to when everything was right
You gave me a song
Your melody to keep
A sign that our friendship was ever so deep
It was simpler times
We laughed and we cried
But always together side by side
Now these notes ring hollow
They echo in the empty air
I have to wonder if you are still somewhere out there
The familiar landscape beyond recognition
The world I know has changed
I traverse it with desperate hopes to see you again
The lush forest draws me back
With the faint familiar melody
Yet the only time I call it home is in my memories
Time has taken us apart
And your music is all I have
Within the meadow I take your seat
And play softly your song
on the instrument you gave to me
Full MoonLonely is a hard word to define
Wanting others around?
That being impossible?
Or simply being on your own?
Maybe it's all of the above
But if you've always been alone, does it truly count?
How can you tell the difference if you've never had the opposite?
Darkness can only be defined by lack of light
But if you've never seen the light to begin with...
Apathy is poisonous
That you proved to me and so much more
What was it I said to you that night on the train?
"I'm trusting you to watch my six"
I consider the trust upheld
Though I'm not sure you do
Make no mistake
This fate was chosen of my own free will
After all, apathy may be poison
But so is caring
I know I picked correctly
And next time you see a full moon
Please think of me
But promise you'll smile
Like I should have done more
LiveDo you ever have that feeling?
The urge to just get up and go?
It's not because you hate your home life
It's not because you want to leave this town behind
The feeling comes after you realize that life is short
and you've spent all these seasons inside.
Start the car
It's a summer's eve when you ask your parents for permission
They ask where you want to go and you tell them you aren't sure but you'll be back soon
You try to explain the feeling and they don't quite understand
but they give you the keys anyway
Follow me to anywhere
Bright eyes focus on the road like you were taught
But from your peripheral vision and every single stoplight you feel it
The glow of the stars above you mixed with the aura of the evening air
A warm wind picks up and you turn the car to follow it
City lights pollute the sky
Come with me to a better place
You aren't a wild child
You don't stop the car at bars or parties
You certainly don't entertain the

The melodious voice fades with the end of the song. He doesn't want it to stop but it's how the game works. He hopes she'll play it again.
"YES! I got a perfect!" she exclaims from the living room. He can't see her at this angle because the figurine table is around the corner, but sound travels well in this house.
"All right, now turn it off so we can go." It's the mother.
"Kay, just give me a minute to quit."
Within ten minutes the familiar double-click of the front door locking can be heard. The house is silent for only a moment before there is hustle and bustle from upstairs, and a shout of "Movie night!" He tries not to look disappointed. It was only the other day that his owner moved him downstairs to join her other figu
Static Wind [Chapter 1]It's foggy.
That's not the first thing he notices upon opening his eyes, but it's a prominent factor for his first realization; this isn't the department store. He sits up and replays the scene in his head. The robot had packed way more of a punch than he'd realized, and he'd been off-balance to boot. Amy and Tails had come to the rescue, and bam, they'd been thrown into a shelf of televisions.
Had he hit his head on one? Crashed into it too hard? Got a concussion? It's beginning to seem like that's kind of the only explanation here. This place can't be real. An empty road stretches into the horizon, which is an ominous sky of jagged black and red stripes. He decides to ignore the weird scenery and try to wake himself up. Because really? He has to have passed out. This place is one heck of a wacky dream, but a hero isn't allowed to fall unconscious in the middle of a battle! He's got a city to save!
Well actually the thought of that city brings to mind the department store, and he hope
Static Wind [Prologue]"Okay, for the life of me I just can't remember the word. Help me out here man."
"There's a word that fits ya to a T. Perfect description. I wanna be able to tell ya but I'm having a bit of memory loss here. Toss me some suggestions."
"Uh, kay. Weird, but kay. I got this. Lemme see, what do the others call me... Brave, heroic, caring, thoughtful,"
"No no. Not any of those. Oh! That's it! I remember now! Pathetic."
"Pathetic. What else would ya call someone who's fallen so far?"
"All right now I'm even more confused. I haven't fallen, whatever ya mean by that. And I'm not pathetic!"
"Oh. Ahahahaha! That's rich, dude! We both know that's a lie. A hero who can't save the day isn't a hero at all. You were wondering all this time why they haven't come to rescue you. Ever realized why? If you couldn't save them, why would they ever bother saving you? I'll say again. Pathetic."
"No. That's not true. I tried my best and that's all anyone
Dear SantaDear Santa can you fix it for me
To live a day of my life pain free
Where bullies won't rip off my shirt
And, just for once, the bruises don't hurt
Can you please make it that for this one night
My parents get through it without a bad fight
Or that I have an hour without the growing fear
That in the morning I won't be here
Maybe if I am good today
I won't be beaten for being gay
And that I might not have to grieve
Over a friend killed for what they believe
Please don't make it another night on my own
All the rest of this year I have been so alone
Everyone I loved has gone and I'm tired and old
No money for the heating, the house is so cold
Let me find a nice place in which to stay
I'm not fussy; just a nice alley or friendly doorway
Santa what I would give for a crust of fresh bread
Or one night spent safe in a fluffy soft bed
Bring back my daughter, I need her alive
Go tell her killer not to drink and then drive
Tell my mom I love her and give her a hug
Let her know I'm sorry for over
A Taste Of HeavenI know him,his struggle, his pain.
The torture he endures in his brain.
There's a battle in his mind,
leaving him no place to hide,
So slowly he disappears, he fades,
and I'm left with the promises he made.
And now he's in heaven, like a dream,
his mind is quiet, no more silent screams.
But his happiness is tricky, i fear he's wrong,
cause the devils been in his head all along,
what is worse than a personal hell?
A taste of freedom before your eternal jail.
I'll still be there, when it all falls apart,
Picking up the broken pieces of his tired heart.
Does he realize t's a demon of his own creation?
fueled by self-loathing, a lifetime of frustration.
The darkness in him overpowers the light,
and I know that, again, he has lost the fight.
I hang on to my hope, maybe one day he will win,
I pray that he finds the strength to be my hero again.
Be strong, I want to scream, hold onto the light,
but it's useless, I see it's the same old fight.
The darkness in him is strong, but th
The Winter storms are a lot like meThe Winter storms are a lot like me
We’re cold and harsh, we push away.
We hurt all those around us
but at heart, we’re like you
All that we would like
is to recieve
the same love
Let Me BeLet me tell you a goal.
Let me be your shining sun
an ever glowing light
strings of the heart come undone
watch the fires of my heart ignite.
Let me be your gleaming moon
an ever calming guide
everything will be yours soon
our souls have now been tied.
Let me be your eternal amenity
an embrace of growing passion
all wrapped within inviting serenity
feelings given with no set ration.
Let me become whole.
I Don't Care AnymoreThe ones that hurt the most
Are the ones that show the least
How does it feel to win?
When everyone else has lost everything
How’s it feel to shout your hatred?
Telling everyone that they’re loved
I’ll tell you right now, everyone is different
But we all hurt the same
My voice may be silenced
But my words still scream
I may have been raised in the light
But all I know is the night
Hate me if you want
I won’t give what you need
How can you expect sympathy
When all you have is apathy
But I doubt you remember.Dear Mom,
I was five
when you first told me I needed the exercise
and signed me up
for a sports team
but I doubt you remember.
I was six
when you first weighed me
in front of you,
looking down at the number
but I doubt you remember.
I was seven
when you first hung up
my weight in pounds
all summer long, in the kitchen
for everyone to see
but I doubt you remember.
I was eight
when you first bet me,
offering money if
I could go six months
without gaining weight
but I doubt you remember.
I was nine
when you first announced
that we would be dieting
because we all needed
to drop a few pounds
but I doubt you remember.
I was ten
when you first saw me
push away my dinner
and say I didn't need to eat
cause I wasn't that hungry
but I doubt you remember.
I was eleven
when you first
I Need To GoNo matter how shaded
The light may seem
I would not have traded
For another’s dream
This life is mine
And mine alone
I trace the line
Around my clone
They have the time
To feel my pain
Is it a crime
To have something to gain
I pass on my fear
As nothing at all
But what I hold dear
Will bring about my fall
I’m no longer afraid
Of having more to bear
The price I paid
Is secret, I swear
Only but a few
Will ever know
What I've been through
And why I need to go
Absolute ZeroAbsolute Zero
Deep down inside, reality so rough,
Paying for the one who was never sure enough.
Deep down inside, can you still see me?
Can you still remember the better version of me?
Deep down inside, staring to the skyline of this town,
Disappearing, lifting like shadows, down and down.
Paid for every tear and every smile,
Burnt out by the fire called life.
And can you hear me now,
When all that once was a miracle is completely down?
Hearts are torn apart, memories remain the same,
But somehow too painful when there’s only me to blame.
Deep down inside, reaching the absolute zero,
I’ve never promised I’d be your hero.
Deep down inside, can you still remember me?
Do you still know whether there once was a better version of me?
Deep under the absolute zero, hatred and cry,
‘cause the fallen angels can also die.
Under the absolute zero, beyond the wings of a wind,
All alone and broken, left behind blind,
The darkness within, surrounded by fire,
KindleI had to say goodbye to you today
It's all that I can do, just to keep the tears at bay.
I wish that I could turn back the clock
So that I could feel more than this pain and shock.
I know that I will have to suffer through everyday
My world will become more and more gray.
I won't see you for years
And I will bleed a million tears.
The sun may rise tomorrow, but it won't shine through this pain
I will battle every day not to slice through another vein.
I remember clinging to you so tightly I felt my arms breaking
So scared of being alone, scared of my heart aching.
Even if this is how our story ends, and I feel like I've lost my soul
I will always be happy that I got to play this role.
For all of the bad times there were a thousand good
For once in my life, I had someone who understood.
Maybe growing up means growing apart
But forever I will hold you in my heart.
Replace me if you will
But I will love you still.
Even if you aren't by my side
These feelings will never subside.
