Farmazist: I was under the impression
Farmazist: The last argument was truly that
Farmazist: Another bowel cleanser of anger
Farmazist: A bottle of hatred spilled on the floor
Farmazist: Consuming what was left
Farmazist: Of the decency we tried so hard
Farmazist: To cover up with a bandage
Farmazist: I saw this one coming though
Farmazist: On channel 3 news at ten
Farmazist: It was not even the weatherman
Farmazist: What does that tell you about velocity?
Farmazist: Of the winds raging from us?
Farmazist: The tell tale signs must be heeded
Farmazist: No more finding the dead end streets
Farmazist: TIme to turn around and find the interstate
Farmazist: That either pulls us completely apart
Farmazist: Or provides the cement to hold us together
Farmazist: I promise to erase my clich├ęs
Farmazist: If you will forget the rant
Farmazist: Wither way I quit
Farmazist: .

HummingDragonfly: the tale of the ages
HummingDragonfly: rings upon the mind
HummingDragonfly: seeking depths unfathomed
HummingDragonfly: beyond the soul
HummingDragonfly: beyond the senses
HummingDragonfly: where I was before this place
HummingDragonfly: now
HummingDragonfly: the door to heaven
HummingDragonfly: is there- a silent storm
HummingDragonfly: .
HummingDragonfly: the world is a noisy cacophony
HummingDragonfly: shrieks, shouts, jangling of nervous
HummingDragonfly: flight from the self
HummingDragonfly: memories of hell are there
HummingDragonfly: all comfort is sought in flight
HummingDragonfly: from mind's endlessness
HummingDragonfly: eternity terrifies mortality
HummingDragonfly: .
HummingDragonfly: oh I am weary and hurting so
HummingDragonfly: all thoughts of present are pain
HummingDragonfly: let me wander within again
HummingDragonfly: seeking solace
HummingDragonfly: freedom from this place
HummingDragonfly: and there the silent storm
HummingDragonfly: rings upon the mind
HummingDragonfly: frees a soul
HummingDragonfly: and bathes in endless light
HummingDragonfly: .
