I Want to Go Back

Writing by firefly light,
We wait till the moment's right
Then we float through the epithets of space
Knowing the world keeps it's own pace
We stealthily slide through time
Back to when the world was fine
When couples were great and love still beat hate
When children were protected
And evil rejected
And truth was law
Conspiracy only thought

I want to go back
I don't want your flack
Do you remember when we didn't have to
Fuss about what the world was doing to us

Do you remember the age of dreams when seldom
Was heard their shattering screams
When people were kind and never blind
To their effects on others
Their sisters and brothers
Each night is a day past
I realize it won't be the last


A story from life scripted
whose truth shall not be lifted
A light in sorrows back
through the infinite haze of black
We stand where we stand
The only safe place is on dry land


from 90 Days & 70 Blank Pages, released December 31, 1998
