Spindrift (Tiles)

Serve the need Spin the fable Disguise the deed Weaving straw to braids of gold Splash the whitewash on the screen Sins of omission fashioned to mislead Signals mix as hairs poise to split Tiny loopholes confuse intent The facts irrelevant Excuses right the worng Cast illusions And our hazy recollections Guard the way down On the slippery slope Most of the truth fails to show The shifting blame Rises up to stake it's claim I wade with my back towards the waves Shielding my eyes The spindrift burns like the acid words Numbing my mind to be justified Overwhelming Can't fight the dumbing down I sink to the peaceful deep underneath Free from the plastic crown Still spinning around Dress up the orutine Bells,whistles, & neon light Sedate the will to fight Distractions to amuse our attention And our gray convictions Fan the flames of discontent And... I wade with my back towards the waves Shielding my eyes The spindrift burns like the acid words Numbing my mind to the justified As bitterness begins slowly creeping in Push & pull us apart Fingers cross Death do us part Simplicity holds no escape Toss a coin in the air Spin the plates Ignorant to consequence Pay the piper for the dance I see ego thrust upon the throne Held high to deify I see how we choose to believe Answers that deceive & ease the pain Distant wisdom may prevail someday Scrape the whitewash from the screen Tiny loopholes irrelevant Excuses meaningless The neon is black When our recollections Prevent another lapse On the slippery slope I wade with my back towards the waves Shielding my eyes The spindrift burns like the acid words Numbing my mind to the justified Overwhelming Can't fight the dumbing down I sink to the peaceful deep underneath Free from the plastic crown Spinning around Sow the seeds Fearless we replay Themes from timeless ages past Courting all seven sins What was & will always be Protected from ourselves Spin back around once again
