one day the dreamers died within us
when all our answers never came
we hid the truth beneath our skin but
our shadows never looked the same

a ghost is all that's left
of everything we swore we never would forget
we tried to bleed the sickness
but we drained our hearts instead
we are, we are the dead

and when we couldn't stop the bleeding
we held our hearts over the flame
we couldn't help but call it treason
after that we couldn't fill our frames
after that our shadows never looked the same

a ghost is all that's left
of everything we swore we never would forget
we tried to bleed the sickness
but we drained our hearts instead
we are, we are the dead

in summers past we'd challenge fate
with higher pitch and perfect aim
and standing fast, we'd radiate
a light we loved but never named
but the answers never came
and our shadows never looked the same

a ghost is all that's left (we are the ones who lost our faith)
of everything we swore we never would forget (can we be saved?)
we tried to bleed the sickness
but we drained our hearts instead
we are, we are the dead (we are the ones who lost our faith)
a ghost of everything we thought but never said (can we be saved?)
we tried to bleed the sickness
but we drained our hearts instead

we are the ones who lost our faith
we dug ourselves an early grave
we are the dead, can we be saved?

I sit here clutching useless lists
And keys for doors that don't exist
I crack my teeth on pearls
I tear into the history
Show me what it means to me in this world

'Cause I am due for a miracle
I'm waiting for a sign
I'll stare straight into the sun
And I won't close my eyes
Till I understand or go blind

I see the parts but not the whole
I study saints and scholars both
No perfect plan unfurls
Do I trust my heart or just my mind
Why is truth so hard to find in this world
Yeah, in this world

'Cause I am due for a miracle
I'm waiting for a sign
I'll stare straight into the sun
And I won't close my eyes
Till I understand or go blind

I know that there's a point I've missed
A shrine or stone I haven't kissed
A scar that never graced my wrist
A mirror that hasn't met my fist
But I can't help feeling like I'm...

Due for a miracle
I'm waiting for a sign
I'll stare straight into the sun
And I won't close my eyes (and I won't close my eyes)

Due for a miracle
I'm waiting for a sign
I'll stare straight into the sun
And I won't close my eyes

Beautiful Da'Burgh.

Is this your poetry?

I wish I could write poetry like this.

P.S. Da'Burgh if you want more replies to your threads, post something controversial, I notice that all the popular threads are controversial ones.
Your thread is very intreguing but there is nothing to argue about.

What?

It's spelled however I choose to spell it :evil: .

Oh I choose to spell it intriguing.

I guess I used my left hand to hit the (I) Key.
That never works out right.

Thanks for pointing out my pathetic stupidity maria :cry: .

DaBurgh this is such beautiful stuff, even if never put to music. I LOVE the line about staring into the sun until I go blind or understand. As far as posts and replies it's a real crap shoot on here b/cuz people are always in different moods or places when they read our posts. I've been the only one who replied to my posts a few times and it does feel weird. Like, damn, we already feel invisible, don't need to feel it here too!! But don't feel alone, man. You are just as important on here as ANYONE. If all people were the same It wouldn't be very "intriguing" at all, haa. Thanks again for the poigiant (sp?) writings.

Oh come on! What are you, twelve? I wasn't trying to prove anyone's endless stupidity or whatever, it was a joke. Didn't think anyone would take a second glance at it but of course it's better to overreact to everything...jesus.

Maria I hope you are jokeing again. What are you , twelve?
LoL :lol: Maria I am laughing out loud big time. I never had anyone take me so seriously before.

I am sorry, I know its hard to tell if I am serious or not when you can not see my face.

I just think it is very funny that you take me serious, when I was makeing a joke about taking you serious.

I would never call myself pathetic or stupid if I was not joking :) .

Maria you have made my day 8) .

Thanks!

Maria Now I am very confused :? , are you still jokeing?

Honestly it is funny that you can't see my humor, but at the same time say I cant see your humor.

It's spelled however I choose to spell it .
Thanks for pointing out my pathetic stupidity maria .
Come on do you really think I was being serious?
I am never serious. :wink:

I will break it down for you.

It's spelled however I choose to spell it .
Obviously it is not spelled the way I choose(overacting commen to humor)

Thanks for pointing out my pathetic stupidity maria.
I am not pathetic or stupid, I was being sarcastic in the same sense you were being sarcastic by saying "Except that it's spelled intriguing".

I was continueing the sarcastic argument that you started.
If you can't spot sarcasm you shouldent use it, you will only confuse people.

Maybe we both just suck at telling jokes.

I didn't think you mean you actually are stupid and pathetic, but you did sound offended. Which wasn't my intention.

I don't understand that sentence.

Maybe you're just as unable to deliver your message the way you intent to. But I'll use my poor sarcasm when I want to, whether people get it or not. Isn't it the basic lesson of all schools of positive thinking, you can't please everybody??

And I wasn't trying to be sarcastic or anything with that teeny tiny remark, I just found it funny for some weird reason that there actually was something contradictory in that post. Maybe in my head only. I really don't care about Da'Burgh enough to want to hurt him/her in any way, or anybody else here. I'm sure the same applies to me. So just ignore me.

Sorry, too many drugs.

Good point, I was just thinking that I shoulden't try to joke around on this board anymore but you are right, you can't please everybody anyway so I will continue to make my bad jokes, unless there are objections.

Da'Burgh :? :? :? :? :? :? :? :? :? :? :? :? :? :? :? :? :? :? :?
If people have something to argue about you won't be able to shut them up. People love to argue.

I think we are all in agreement that your lyrics are very cool 8) .
Therefor there is not much to talk about. :wink:

I hope I didn't just confuse you futher :? :cry: .

I wanna make it clear I don't want this post to be negative really because the song was just from all the grief experienced through DP/DR. I feel like this is the time that I'm becoming more connected and it's very emotional too. I've heard many become emotional when coming out of DP/DR. Is there any truth behind this?
