I walk round the fortress, A place in time, I have the key, But I don’t use it
Trapped inside is, A distant idea, A colour seen, But not heard
The moon it dances, Across the door, A shadow hides, In plain sight
And in the whisper, Of the stream, I hear stories, Never told.
You look out a window, From time to time, Can’t understand, A stereo dream
Herds of people, Crowding by, Going nowhere, Just haunting
You could follow them, If you wanted, But your rules, They won’t allow it
And time creeps by, At the speed of now, You never touched it, But you know it’s gone.
The Cold little fortress, It watches and waits, Will this time, Be any different?
It knows the answer, But it doesn’t say, Wouldn’t want to, Spoil a surprise
I hear the footsteps, Your leaving, For a moment, My journey stops
Oh emptiness, My polygon heart, It still still beats, To your tune.
