VERUM ÆTERNUS

[2009]

If you and I had been anything less than these tormented souls
we would never have gone so far to become what we are

If you and I have never seen the world as through the eyes of a child
we would never have wanted to stop time
sleepers passing by

If you and I had been anything less than these disenfranchised minds
we would have looked the other way
as we passed each other by

And for the things I know,
from the broken, all I ask
is to look beyond this place.
Stop staring at the ground
thinking only what went wrong

I know there are days,
too dark or hard to take
I hope you know,
this is just one day you have to face
this is not the whole of your life

This is one day
One day out of the whole of your life
