I needed this today,
yes I did, a darker shade;
this fallen grid grants my wish
and it's still not Christmas yet.
I lay bare, steadying my nerves,
urging the only truth I know
to embalm me gently, slowly,
head to toe, it's my coffin.
It began... a pale white hue,
life drains from my eyes;
then I see dark red,
but that blood thins out too.. It's emptiness!
No! No... This flash blinds me,
drags me away, far from rest,
from silence, from my home;
to face 'em all, the only reality.
