w/m Thom L. Inglin


Why do you simplify my soul?
I'm much more complex than I may seem.
Or is it just a bit insane - this dead cliché, this dry routine?
And why do you simplify my soul?
I'm passive now, but I may wake
And feed again the binding fear
that surfaces with each mistake

Take me as I seem to be and try not to ask why
'Cause what I am is killing me
I certainly don't want to die this way
But I get closer to it every day

Precocious in my faith - it seems
That I know so little, fear so much
that all my intellect seems dead
compared to those your death has touched.
And when I lay me down to sleep
and I pray for that keeping I can't expect
A miracle occurs within
that chaos of my profound neglect

Chaos, chaos, lovely chaos
Complicate simplicity
Burning bridges light my passage
to a dark eternity...
