i stand at the crossroads.

the paths unfold like a kaleidoscope,

the paths unfold like a kaleidoscope, and who knew stealing some of the future

the paths unfold like a kaleidoscope, and who knew stealing some of the future could lead me here with a torch in hand,

the paths unfold like a kaleidoscope, and who knew stealing some of the future could lead me here with a torch in hand, atop oil coated peril.

the paths unfold like a kaleidoscope, and who knew stealing some of the future could lead me here with a torch in hand, atop oil coated peril. each second that passes

i should've thought more of the deal's bounds,

i should've thought more of the deal's bounds, because the torch is shaking

i should've thought more of the deal's bounds, because the torch is shaking in my fingers.

i should've thought more of the deal's bounds, because the torch is shaking in my fingers. the fault is mine,

i had the power of punishment,

i had the power of punishment, though i gave nothing in return for every path i saw,

i had the power of punishment, though i gave nothing in return for every path i saw, so now i stand at the crossroads,

i had the power of punishment, though i gave nothing in return for every path i saw, so now i stand at the crossroads, giving it all.

giving it all.

the two bridges loop at my feet,

the two bridges loop at my feet, each one unknown and unclear,

the two bridges loop at my feet, each one unknown and unclear, a blind spot,

the two bridges loop at my feet, each one unknown and unclear, a blind spot, that i eradicated in the past with an unfeeling will,

the two bridges loop at my feet, each one unknown and unclear, a blind spot, that i eradicated in the past with an unfeeling will, unfeeling for my demise.

the two bridges loop at my feet, each one unknown and unclear, a blind spot, that i eradicated in the past with an unfeeling will, unfeeling for my demise. which path?

the two bridges loop at my feet, each one unknown and unclear, a blind spot, that i eradicated in the past with an unfeeling will, unfeeling for my demise. which path? which way?

the oil is slick under my feet,

the oil is slick under my feet, but i know i can't fall-

the oil is slick under my feet, but i know i can't fall- my torch would burn out.

the oil is slick under my feet, but i know i can't fall- my torch would burn out. the descent into hell is easy,

the oil is slick under my feet, but i know i can't fall- my torch would burn out. the descent into hell is easy, they say,

the oil is slick under my feet, but i know i can't fall- my torch would burn out. the descent into hell is easy, they say, so i'll make it hard.

the oil is slick under my feet, but i know i can't fall- my torch would burn out. the descent into hell is easy, they say, so i'll make it hard. my blindness is the price, nothing for every bit of everything

the torch that falls from my hand

the torch that falls from my hand flickers almost sorrowfully,

the torch that falls from my hand flickers almost sorrowfully, and i say goodbye.

the torch that falls from my hand flickers almost sorrowfully, and i say goodbye. the flames that ravage the bridges

the torch that falls from my hand flickers almost sorrowfully, and i say goodbye. the flames that ravage the bridges to the future

lick the

lick the empty air

lick the empty air where my sight once stood.

i once stood at the crossroads.
