SLIPS AWAY

 

As the world you knew slips away,

The road gets narrow, no room to turn back.

The stranger comes closer in a crown of black.

Following your own heart till the last note fades,

As the world you knew slips away.

 

As the world you know slips away,

The teapot tips and the truth pours out.

The breath flies on, the sign goes dark.

Pain so hot it canít be contained or obeyed,

As the world you knew slips away.

 

As the world you knew slips away,

With a faith and belief that nobody can see,

Everything itís own striking peculiarity,

Doors with no locks, spirits without decay,

As the world you know slips away.

 

As the world you know slips away,

The hardest times vanish like a carnival.

The kindest heart grows impeccable.

Sometimes the feelingís just a dark ache,

As the world you knew slips away.

 

As the world I knew slips away,

The one who loves as much as I is leaving

For the prettiest place right before my eyes.

My last resort just keeps on crumbling away

As the world I knew slips away.
