Simple Answers


I remember coming back to my senses from time to time 
And she would be right there before my eyes 
"A penny for your thoughts," is what she would say 
I was to scare to tell her that I was praying that this never went away 
I was scared to tell her of the flashbacks that were just haunting me 
Before she dove into my depths and rescued me 
Never the nag but definitely committed 
She said that she was feeling this and wanted to know if I was with it 
If only she could possibly see the raging storms she calmed inside of me 
Times that I thought I was going out of my mind, she rained sanity 
At a time when all of existence was against me 
She swore her love and allegiance, and vowed to protect me 
But I've always been the calm right before the storm 
I live right before the stampede, when the herd is restless, and continue to snort 
They're hoofing at the ground, lighting flashes, it's to late to abort 
Thunder's report shatters the walls of the herds fort 
Off to the races the herd, my mind, racing wild 
Racing across the mental plains of nothing and then everything between the dials 
But you took me from analog to digital, from antonym to solid state 
Never before has I ever trusted anyone with the decisions of my fate 
We are the tale of two cities, i'm praying this is the never ending story 
I'm curled watching something romantic, instead of searching for something bloody and gory 
this time sex isn't about the numbers, or an attempt to stake my claim 
The morning after is followed by more healing, instead of bleed more pain 
After being bound for so long it's hard for a dog to realize that he's no longer chained 
No longer being torture, there is a purge happening within my heart and my brain 
You've reconnected me to the universe and humanity all the same 
Yes as I lie here looking into your eyes, I realize that utopia was just contained
