As the sand in the hourglass falls,
The shifting movement of the clock proceeds forward
Never backward.
Reminicing of the time once believed to last forever,
The ties that bonded severed
That inevitable facination that comes when the last breath is taken.

Blink, Blink
The experiences of the past suddeny become present.
Blink, Blink
I recall my last love.
Blink, Blink
I recall my last fuck.
Blink, Blink
Mistakes become erased.
Blink, Blink
The pain is so vivid, with every frame I capture each moment like snapshots.
Blink, Blink
What seemed to matter most, no longer is relevant

Who knew what was to come of it!
The thought of moving beyond time
Beyond space
Beyond place
Beyond here
Was I able to survive this long?
Make it this far?
All I have is my faith
Yet I hear
Whispering in my ear.

Hey, it's me death
Knocking at your front dor.
You scared?
Remember the unfulfilled dreams?
The unresolved problems?
The broken promises?
The disappointments?
I struggle to erase the doubts,
The clogging and blocking of everything that was my life.
This IS my life.

I see light.
I am love.
I've done good
I've made friends
I've made an impact
I have made a difference.

Suddenly there is a shift between what really matters
And what really matters most.
I've seen this moment
Prayed to God to give me another chance.
Prayed for Him to reveal
Not steal
What is rightfully mine
What I earned...
To be present.
To be here

Be clear
I am not confused
I will not lose
My life to death.
I will live my life
Until death do us part.

Ye though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death
I fear no evil.
Be still
It's an audacious upheaval
The first shall be last
And the last shall be next.
Thoughts of streaming consciousness
Never rest
Until I do.

Blink, Blink
My lids are getting heavier
Blink, Blink
I surrender
Blink, Blink
My life IS death.

Blink, Blink

Blink, Blink
