The Far Side of Regret
Two certain over comers searching for comfort in the cold blank spaces in their minds
So unreasonably set
One at the window one by the door
And it’s more than they can do to walk across the floor
Maybe they’ll meet again on the far side of regret
A certain friend of freedom becomes a slave again
To the same recycled pattern he’s trying to forget
The strong man falls before the weak
A screaming voice with no right to speak
Maybe there will be silence on the far side of regret
Time and time and time again we’ve seen it all we’ve felt it all
Line by line we try again
To the far side of ourselves we crawl
We’re crying out what’s it about
There is no doubt
We can’t even breathe
We’re crying out what’s it about
There is no doubt
We can’t even breathe without you
A certain aimless woman drifting through a love affair
Trained by the child inside her to badly bet
She drinks the cup again to end up dry
Can’t remember when began the lie
Maybe she’ll be satisfied on the far side of regret
Time and time and time again we’ve seen it all we’ve felt it all
Line by line we try again
To the far side of ourselves we crawl
We’re crying out what’s it about
There is no doubt
We can’t even breathe
We’re crying out what’s it about
There is no doubt
We can’t even breathe without you
The desert drenched the ocean dry
The upright down left on his side
The newborn crawls the old man flies
The dust rains down on falling skies
The stars below beneath above
All peace is war all hate is love
