I'm always at a loss
How to make my way across
Always looking for another kind of way
Vested interest safe haven
Entertained exhausted hands
Talk into the future holding thoughts
Overwhelmed they train us
So of course they charge a payment
Tracking mysteries your shadows in the bank

Illusion of confusion is a phase
Letting go or locked inside a gaze
Letting up forgiving out of light
Anecdotal evidence of life
Nothing left except for what is right
Debt is doubt is debt out in the light
Walking on the B side of the disc
Owned and operated games of risk
Now as near as doing well these days
Don't it cross into those other ways
Escape is but the language left behind
Raise 'em up like fossils of design
