Hidden Life (Aug 09)

Try to understand why you were put here
Every question has a simple answer
Reflect on the past, before the future takes hold of you
Each day, will come and go
and with it so will different you's
So shed a layer and put on a new skin
For tomorrow, will be the same as today only with a different name

Burn away your days
For only time will tell if you'll make it
You are what you want to be
So want the most
and you just might not get the least

Close your eyes and dwell in darkness
It will open your mind, and follow your heart
to a place you cannot go while living
So die in peace
and come alive in silence

For you yourself is in you
Deep in that corner
Where no one looks
Under your bed, in a box
Never to be opened again
Until this life is unlocked
