Redefinition

The wicked parts of us, the lack of depth, the depravity
and hatred we create defines describes our world
we are who we might be in the mirror, in the reflection of
the dreams we have of our lives…as they unfurl

Fear sinks through skin through our lives, we fear it all
without knowing that failure is only a different choice
a different path both bad better sad but just a fall
a flip of a coin every time we hear our own voice

Forget what we said about going home, about
where we should be when we should be anywhere
Forget the idea that we exist at all, that we’re
anything but bags of bones, blood, skin and hair

Move your mind to that other palace, that
place where the guardians of thought reside
Let them tell you and try to convince you that
in the end, this is what you will decide

Redefinition is the resolution the sane road the ride
toward the future…toward the next true feeling
never known never felt only because it had no name
and when named…it leaves us sad and reeling

Redefinition removes replaces resolves the issues
without changing the underlying reality we know
that will always exist regardless our understanding
regardless where we come to and where we go

Forget what we said about going home, about
where we should be when we should be anywhere
Forget the idea that we exist at all, that we’re
anything but bags of bones, blood, skin and hair

Move your mind to that other palace, that
place where the guardians of thought reside
Let them tell you and try to convince you that
in the end, this is what you will decide

Calling ourselves by different names, different decisions
made and found at the heart of who we are when
we are the people we have to want to should just be
when all we are is all of nothing…until the very end

Redefinition reborn redeemed
nothing like we ever seemed
Redefinition reassert respond
as we head to the thin beyond

Redefinition

Redeemed.
