Emotional, flat line,
most feelings disconnected at the spine.
That's the way I spent the last six months,
"I'm doing fine thank you very much”.

But you fought ’til the very end,
smile faced for all your friends.
You don't deserve facade.
So here's my feeling before forget them all.

You don't know,
when things will change,
you only know stays the same.
You don't know,
when things will change,
and since you left,
nothing's been the same.

But I feel like,

Some where between science fiction
and the realm of superstition,
lays the land we use to cope.
After life stories played on a loop.

Your friends will be there
your pets will be there
Your family's waiting
They hear you praying.

Yet the image of your body remains
And somehow there's no more pain.

Fables and fairy tales?
For those left behind that care?

I still remember when you came to me
and said "man I'm just too weak"
It was the beginning of the end,
the beginning of the very end.

I stayed awake until you got rest.
Crying my self to sleep.
I made it about me, and we made it us

Is there forgiveness when you're gone?
Is there anything at all?
Do these fables have me crazy?
Are there ever signs?
Or just tricks of the mind?

I'm not trying to be bleak,
frailty makes life more important to me.
I'm the type that needs to touch and see,
to know it's not just a dream.

So let's burn,
that flame,
once more for old times sake.

So I can feel you in the air,
when a gust passes through my hair.

What I wouldn't give, for some confirmation
One more final Collin reiteration:

"Daniel believe
Ryan believe
Jeffrey believe
Ian please believe "

I'll keep listening.
