lyrics

Symmetry

AIDE
Shadows arcing down
Held me anchored and abound;
And lanterns laid the culprit's way
Like jewels without a crown,
But I know now the spectres around me
are bound to fade.
I will let it go and tell you that
The angles are different.

When yours suffers a round,
Science of the fool?
But I know now of the efforts to shade your hate.
I will never shore or stand for that;
He told me you did it.

I know now the time for symmetry.

JUNIOR
I know now
That the tinsel you've wound
Are bound to fade.
I know now
Though the aims are the same,
The angles are different.

Anchors hang in you
How they bend and crest me too.
But you cannot put to sea
Wearing caromed clarity.
And whether you agree,
You wear yours around.
You wear down.
I know now
To hold the hate away;
I knew how, and though the aims are the same,
He told me you did it.

I know now the time for symmetry.
