20 (who?)
My ship went down in a sea of sound.
When I woke up alone I had everything:
a handful of moments I wished I could change
and a tongue like a nightmare that cut like a blade.

Why do you care what people think?
Are you hooked up to their leash?
Can you hear the silence?
Can you see the dark?
Can you fix the broken?
Can you feel my heart?

Spinning around, I’m weightless.
Leaving it now, just taste it; it’s begun --
we’ve come undone now.
If I'm a bad person, you don't like me,
well I guess I'll make my own way.
I took a walk around the world
to ease my troubled mind;
I left my body lying somewhere
in the sands of time.

She lives in a fairy tale
somewhere too far for us to find --
forgotten the taste and smell
of a world that she's left behind.
She sits up high surrounded by the sun;
one million branches and she loves every one.
"Mom and dad, did you search for me?
I've been up here so long I'm going crazy!"

Now I know that I can't make
you stay, but where's your heart?

Do you know I count your
heartbeats before you sleep?
I bite my fingernails to bone
and then I crawl back under the stairwell
to a place I call my home.

*stanza. Not line. My apologies, my brain appears to have been eaten by something lately and I can't keep words straight.
