The Constant Sky

 

 

Like the conscience I’ve never had

The constant sky hangs

Low over my shoulder

Watching me die a little more each day

Waiting for the day that I just don’t look back

 

Like a father who left mind and soul

But physically in the next room

The constant sky reminds me every time

My eyes open and see the steel sun shining through

Clouds of iron mesh and broken thoughts of the past

 

The constant sky fills me with fear and dread

For all the things I’ve done and said

And I can’t get away from the constant sky

No matter how hard I try and try

It’s the constant sky, it’s the constant sky

 

Like the tattoo on the inside of my eyelids

I see you afloat in the constant sky

Lying in the steel shade of moons and stars

Waiting for what I don’t know

Watching me die a little more each day

 

The constant sky fills me with fear and dread

For all the things I’ve done and said

And I can’t get away from the constant sky

No matter how hard I try and try

It’s the constant sky, it’s the constant sky

 

Like the tattoo on the inside of my eyelids

I see you afloat in the constant sky

Like the tattoo on the inside of my eyelids

I see you afloat in the constant sky

No matter how hard I try and try

It’s the constant sky, it’s the constant sky

No matter how hard I try and try

It’s the constant sky, it’s the constant sky
