Lyrics

Easel

 

absorbingly temporary

captured in some prose

the tarnished tongue of one so young

who never will be old

tenure of the forged

facsimile for taste

reflecting all this friction

subsequent addiction

 

you're not looking...through the glass

you just stare...at the glass

forgot how to breathe again

 

you were nowhere around

the striking out events

that set me off my feet

put me on the streets again

so march the massing numbers

the memory will reign

once a mere memorial

the multitude of names

 

you're not looking...through the glass

you just stare...at the glass

forgot how to breathe again

 

you're not looking...through the glass

you just stare...at the glass

forgot how to breathe again

 

you're not looking...you just stare

I'll never never lose your name

 

you're not looking...through the glass

you're just staring...at the glass

my memory will always reign

 

no...I'll never stop looking

no...I'll never stop staring

no...I'll never ever never lose that pain
