Hurry up
What are we waiting for?
Lonely just praying
For nothing to say
Never enough
Who do you take me for?
Sporting the favorite
Betting a fake

Let fly the messenger
One for you better few
Madder the mind
Only words
Making you heavier
Slick with ill residue
Scattered in time

Breathe in the babble
Reject ancient fantasy
Kneel to your candle
Can you feel it happening?
Defenseless or addled
Earnestly, how we pretend

Nerve and spark
Strangled in latitude
Remember who's watching you
Trinkets and steam
Pitch and start
Flirting with absolutes
Something from nothing
Fact or belief
