canvasses stretching out into the distance
as white as the winter in me
dreaming of color and texture and shape
an alternate reality
hung in a gallery opening night
all the critics have nothing to see
still they go on and on about how less is more
the ultimate economy

but i walk out
i'm walking out
cause i'm tired

underneath icicles caught between states
they can't decide which way to be
i see a reflection stare back in the mirror
but who is that looking at me
with bags under eyes all glazed over and glassy
the sadness is all that i see
oh spark of ignition i carry be born
and grow like a garden in me

cause i'm burned out
i'm burning out again

the cracks on the surface stretch out into spiderwebs
and cover the face of the screen
they turn into pieces of puzzles that shatter
a curious kind of machine
i wake up and wonder why i get so angry
when something gets broke in my dream
oh spirit of charity open my hands
i don't want to keep anything

but i hold on
i'm holding on again
