Fiends & Deadlines Pt. I
Written by Glenn McCrary & Jade Day
‘Tis a simple light of reason I seek
Before now ‘twas beyond my reach
The intimacy had been breached
And to my knees I had fallen weak
I'd fallen before the end began,
the call of each sharpened urge
bid me to seek refuge within
darkest places, and the darkest shores.
The taste of flames on wounded knees
Composing ashes from our cradles of fear
Conflictions characterized as stanzas
I felt the metallic resonance of infinity
when you spoke so headily, my name.
For a single, cured moment the
hush of the loss of impulse, and the gain
set us up on heaven's shelves,
so fragile, like glass.
