Past the Line

Every treasure kept here on a loan
Shine until the lustre goes
Devour everything you know
With those eager hands
Because you can’t take meaning past the line
They check you and they strip you every time


And it’s a holy thing to lose, every garnered bit of truth
Every ounce of joy that life imbued in you
Every bracket of despair that slowly fades
To a tempo you don’t mind
Every broken bone is mending, every tired day is gone
From here you must surrender every thing that you did wrong
Because you can’t take meaning past the line
They check you and strip you every time


If Moses died in a submarine,
And his final letter written in his dream
Was penned to be his vision of a world
Or if cowards dies in the evergreen
Does the prettiness dissolve,
Every runaway to the sinking sand, every fool was in the leaves
If seeming truth is unaware
If god was meant to be everywhere
I dressed my life to believe it so I don’t care
Because you can’t take meaning past the line
They check you and strip you every time

Every feeble truth is bending past the natural course of life
My childhood fear amending with a haunting kind of lie
If the shelter is the calming day
Or the mottled stars are a give-away
If the faithful smile is starting, but you can’t unwind
If the fervent world under the evening stars don’t mind,
Every man will have a go at telling the reason for his life
A disappearing wisdom remembered by the sky
Because you can’t take meaning past the line
They check you and strip you every time


Well if you pawn your silver for a chain of beads and the picture is sublime
I will hang you in my memories and keep you for a time
And when the chaos clouds, and rain obscures, I will draw you to my eyes
And though it’s subtle and the it’s splendid I’ll believe it every time
It was never hard to love you, but I have to say goodbye
The tears they are running and they need a reason why
Because you can’t take meaning past the line
They check you and strip you every time


If the crowded bed is tipping, and the feeling is quite numb
If the loneliness is beating past the darkness come
If makeup doesn’t suit you, because you don’t like strangers eyes
Or if the polish on your nails becomes a vision that you despise
Erode each illusion with an exaggerated shine
The fervour of your spirit is a phantom you can find
But if the bravery never narrows the distance in your mind
I too am exhausted by the notions of this life
I’ll learn from a future that is trusted still in time
Because you can’t take meaning past the line
They check you and strip you every time
