Pain For The Cure

It seems each day I try to find
this land of peace but fall behind
the broken fragments in my head
cut, bled dry, and lost instead
I search for pain to seek the cure
I wish for calm to cause the stir
I lay awake to fall asleep
I dream of truths that lie beneath
my freckled face and wounded nose
connected to immobile toes
staying firmly where they’re lent
playing dumb to freedom spent
I search for pain to seek the cure
I wish for calm to cause the stir
When thoughts lay dormant in my head
I pounce too soon with plans undressed
Every day I fall behind
this land of peace I just can’t find
With pallid eyes and breaking teeth
I dream of truths that lie beneath
Every window, every door
seems to offer liquid shores
Living a brass lullaby
ringing hopes that never try
I search for pain to seek the cure
I wish for calm to cause the stir
and when the sickness settles in
resent the force I’ll seek again
Seeking pain to reach the cure
Seeking calm to cause the stir
seems to offer so much more
than lullabies behind closed doors
Look outside the window now
Don’t hide your eyes, and don’t look down
Meet your wisdom, greet your youth
Understanding every bruise
Some will stay and some will wait
Some will let you marinate
But every letter scratched away
Is one more breath you hesitate
I search for pain to seek the cure
But she won’t live here much longer
And when I think I’m whole again
Somehow the circle paints an end
