lyrics

Verse 1:

What's become of me?
Truth fades to black
Fear lights the path
As I escape this crimson tide
That's taken me
to the abyss of my existence
A vacant premonition leading
This vessel far away from all I know....

Wake up!
You're navigating oceans
Depressed sensory nerves will slow the man I know I can be
Rise up!
Your drowning 'neath emotions
Repressed memories bury the truth
Of a youth's forgotten soul

Chorus:

Do the blind dream in sight?
Will I ever find that place?
The glimpse that I see is hazy, contorted, faded and out of reach
I see a silhouette of a man with a bottle in hand
It comes and goes like the transient breeze
And wisps away like wind to sand

Verse 2:

Peeling back the skin
Diving below to find the source
That caused the pain
That caused a change in my beliefs
The age of innocence is gone

My virgin eyes had never seen such wickedness
An earthquake shook the fragile frame inside my chest
I found it difficult to rest within my head
Amidst this emptiness

Paralytic thoughts
Scream without a sound
Something draws me back
To an image that cannot be found

Chorus:

Do the blind dream in sight?
Will I ever find that place?
The glimpse that I see is hazy, contorted, faded and out of reach
I see a silhouette of a man with a bottle in hand
It comes and goes like the transient breeze
And wisps away like wind to sand

Bridge:

Gazing up at the stars
Lead me home to the past
See the shore from afar
Let loose sails from the mast

Chorus:

Do the blind dream in sight?
Will I ever find that place?
The glimpse that I see is hazy, contorted, faded and out of reach
I see a silhouette of a man with a bottle in hand
It comes and goes like the transient breeze
And wisps away like wind to sand
