Questions

Is time not an illusion?

Why does that sound so insane?

I've seen my life just turn to moments

Snapshots in pain


Now I cannot, live the present

And it doesn't take too much to blur these lines

So why can't I learn to accept,

The past is what you leave behind


Questions dipped in poison

Burning with seeds of doubt

Helpless I turn to the heavens

But the silence is still too loud


Will I ever burn these bridges

I've built so strong and so sure

Or bound by my need for them

Will I linger by these shores


Questions dipped in poison

Burning with seeds of doubt

Helpless I turn to the heavens

But the silence is still too loud


I watch the shadows play with my mind

Weary ghosts that will weaken with time

And I know that one day I will find the answers

That there's reprieve for the blind


Questions I will not fear them

Though I'm still so full of doubt

Searching for the answers

In the echoes of my shout


Is time not an illusion?

Why does that sound so insane?

I've seen my life just turn to moments

Snapshots in pain
