My soul allowed you entrance
to the sacristy of all I am
yet now pure shadows span
across the distance

for in darkness do we live our days
playing roles that wish away
the love that we could be
while we wander through eternity
each one alone

as we seek illusive infamy
in all the wrong places
for what are the faces
of man in the end
if not gone?

ever-changing now within
the circle and the spin
of all that is

and I wonder why my soul allowed you in
explosive now
the walls that would defend evaporate
as the I of I just dissipates
for I feel you drawing near
yet once again
