They're Just Castles in the Sand
Iím not safe here in my mind
left alone bending time.
Stretching it till I can view
all the past laid out.

The truth hurts worse than a thousand lies,
no alibiís or weapons can touch.
Itís a whisper in the back of the mind
that reminds me
of whatís been done.

Iím on the beach
in the sands of time
re-creating all of mine.
These castles I build here
will hide in them
all thatís real.
Kept behind guard and Locke
because history doesnít always teach us
what not to do,
just whatís been done.

Behind castle gates
triple stitching and
butterfly lacing
these human inconsistencies
into something I can live with.
Made from the fabric of time,
a web of lies so finely spun
I wonít be able to see through
these blinders.
Rose colored glasses that will fit
so perfectly.

Rocking, rocking here
threadbare and frail
with just one prayer
forming in the clasp of hands.
Undo the ripples that created the waves
corroding these sands of mine,
before castles dissolve
revealing hidden truths
of what it is Iíve done.
