Call On Me Darkness

I was cleaning up the basement tonight, organizing and generally making it a nicer place to be. The last part I did tonight was picking up Legos. Most of them are my brother's old Legos. That's when it hit me hard.

As it happens, I was listening to music on shuffle, and Soilwork's "Sick Heart River" was playing. I know I preach about lyrics being unimportant to music, but that comes with the important caveat: Except when they are important. A few lines seemed fitting:
Leaning against what' next to me
Have no fear, won't see
Will it eat me up or bring me down
I'll gradually make up my mind, my mind...

Revolution within myself
I'm puzzled, still overwhelmed
By the stories that you would tell
They always send me something

Revolution within myself... within myself...

Let me give my best, I won't depend
This time I will make another plan to find
What's left and nothing less, still I won't tread
I'll find my own way to make it all worthwhile

Call, call on me darkness

Wait, wait on me now...
Won't you say...
Say that I'm sorry
'Cause I won't wait

I've found another form
It's breeding life
It must have been there
The whole time when I was dead
'Cause I was pledged to emptiness
And now I've let myself
To see all the things
I just didn't expect

Still I remember, still I repent
I'd walk through
The never
Despite my descent

Reborn, acknowledging the part of me that once was lost
I have repressed, too many years, my utopia was within my grasp

Doomed in absentia, left to be sentenced
Still rising to cherish, all the things I have left...

Call, call on me darkness

Wait, wait on me now...
Won't you say...
Say that I'm sorry
'Cause I won't wait



Sorry, but there won't be a review posted today. But I originally envisioned this as a blog where I could post anything I want. I hope you get something out of this.
