lyrics

perhaps i see in selective positivity,
a highlight reel if you will.
moments of splendid, refined virility
race past the light i choose to cast
projected over memories lapsed,
the reasons why we haven't talked in years.
and still i cannot help but wonder why
my mind isn't somewhere else.
and yes, i remember in the waning hours
being told eventually i'd illustrate the truth
to un-enlightened, impetuous youth.
and i've been to there and back,
surprisingly recognize that
my foresight isn't half of what it once was.
and now i can't say that it's yours and my
reflection against which i trace them all.
a grease pen to mark disparaged frames.
and my mind is somewhere else.
if you will allow me a moment to clarify,
i have this strange propensity to view water as future ice.
the eventual reduction of molecular velocity —
impending friction dormant in us all.
let's pretend that you exist,
can't help but yearn for memories missed,
well your youthful years have not been lived in vain.
for i too have spent them, consumed in an attempt
to map and identify behavioral patterns so i
can bring to you the sanest version of myself yet.
and now i realize i just fictionalized
her mind as somewhere else.
her mind is somewhere else,
and my mind is somewhere else.
