YOU ARE STILL ALIVE

Splendid are the virtues of a silent man
With a mouthful of pride and his head in his hand
Weighted down by an ego, held up by adrenaline
Pouring from his fingers and their tips to never touch you again

Who will stroke you in the comfort of your bed?
No man now that this silent man has left
Dragging all the way his bones and skin
Pulled by his fingers and their tips to never touch you again

Dip your eyes into the sea
Tell me, did the salt begin to sting?
Lie awake on the mountainside
Tell me, did the wind erode your eyes?
Yes, I’ve taken away your site
But you are still alive

To hear the truth in words rather than a vision of all mankind
To feel compassion and warmth, first you must be blind
Yes, I’ve taken away your site
But you are still alive
Yes, you may be blind
But you are still alive

Now hear me, seeing as you cannot read my lips
You may be frightened, but must embrace each kiss
Decisions, friend, are left to darkened ways
Trust me, you will find light in darkened days

Skin and sounds, please hear the life
Smell the depth and taste the height
It’s all right, it’s all right
You are still alive

Dip your eyes into the sea
Tell me, did the salt begin to sting?
Lie awake on the mountainside
Tell me, did the wind erode your eyes?
Yes, I’ve taken away your site
But you are still alive
Yes, you may be blind
But you are still alive
