The rhythm of life heaven withstanding and smiling we're all swept away
The rhythm of life is not so demanding as some caught in narrows would
Say
Fragile as ships as we pass through Gibraltar the sirens have long given
Way
Dark as the murky graveyard of sailors whispering secrets told in the
Crashing waves
The beating of hearts set walls to trembling the power of silence
Persuades
The stumbling feet stagger predestined we all end up wild eyed and
Crazed
And from the madness most jaded of vision reflections of horror invade
Running and falling relinquish your venom the antidote surely will cause
Your affliction to fade
How little we know of what we are blessed with our shimmering island it
Turns
How little we look at what we see clearly of tragedy's lessons not
Learned
Sleeping through classes we'll make it up later there's still so much
Time left to go
Misguided roses we bloom in October emerging triumphant in time for the
Season's first snow
