lyrics

SPLINTERED EYE

all my kicking, all of my fight
all my days and all of my nights
all my righteousness, all of my light
i cannot get it right

such a thing anyone can create
confusing twisted humble state
i look for eyes but lack the sight
wounded vision, failing flight

it was me or it was you
but from the tear this chaos grew
i fear it's fury exceeds my might
i fear it's darkness will steal my light

such a thing anyone can create
confusing twisted humble state
i look for eyes but lack the sight
wounded vision, failing flight

sometimes the eyes upward can pierce
they can part the atmosphere
but clarity's quick to leave the mind
distraction is an easy find
what gaze can lock sincere
i cannot abate the fear
when all of time has come to pass
the mark was missed, alone at last

all this, all this, all this is showing
my heart, my heart, i keep on throwing
against the wall, into the sky
polluted, splintered, moistened eye
