During the time of which I speak it was hard to turn the other cheek
To the blows of insecurity  Feeding the cancer of my intellect the blood of love soon neglected 
Lay dying in the strength of its impurity  Meanwhile our friends we thought were so together 
They've all gone and left each other in search of fairer weather
And we sit here in our storm and drink a toast 
To the slim chance of love's recovery.
 There I am in younger days, star gazing,
 Painting picture perfect maps of how my life and love would be
Not counting the unmarked paths of misdirection 
My compass, faith in love's perfection 
I missed ten million miles of read I should have seen
 Meanwhile friends we thought were so together 
Left each other one by one in search of fairer weather
And we sit here and drink a toast 
To the slim chance of love's recovery.
Rain soaked and voice choked like silent screaming in a dream 
I search for our absolute distinction
Not content to blow and bend
To the whims of culture that swoop like vultures  Eating us away, eating us away
 Eating us away to our extinction 
Oh how I wish I were a trinity, so if I lost a part of me
I'd still have two of the same to live
But nobody gets a lifetime rehearsal, as specks of dust we're universal 
To let this love survive would be the greatest gift we could give
Tell all the friends who think they're so together 
That these are ghosts and mirages, these thoughts of fairer weather
 Though it's storming out I feel safe within the arms of love's discovery
