Always hits you in a moment; staring out in a solitary gaze.

It gets you down and loses the amusement

when you find there's no purple in your haze. That's just a story

of a glamorous confusion; a universe that falls on you like rain;

a lucky curse of endless situations playing out in circles in your brain.

That's just a story.

So pull me up and I'll tell you now, there's a feeling we can't ease.

It comes and goes in my like the air we breathe. It's a permanent release.

And you know it's an illusion; the reflection that lingers in the wine

of a face lost in salutations with a smile that's fading over time.

That's just a story.

They tell you once but you will find it out in a glimpse of clarity

that comes and goes in me like the air we breathe.

It's a permanent release growing deep inside of me.
