Do You Know what You Mean To Me?
Get Your Desires When I Retire

Duh, for Cody...I hope you DO know what you mean to me, babe...

Crystal tears create a cascade of ice.
In a world created of ashes and vice.
It is one moment- one breath- for all eternity
Locked within our minds to determine our humanity.
I trudged along the sandy beaches of the desert floor.
I left my body lying in a world that is no more.
All around me I hear her beautiful echo sounding.
Her diamond deserts are beautifully astounding.
Within them manifest a heat-tempered sorrow.
It flirts with my fate and defines my tomorrow.
It is that one moment- that breath- that defines what is me.
That moment that defines how I’ll live by my creed.
I remember it- the last breath you took in my presence.
I could eternally defy my own law of evanescence.
Yet it seems even the most beautiful of oasis dreams
Shatter and fall apart- they’re subjected to screams.
But I find in blissful ignorance I won’t deny how I feel
Don’t care if you’re above me because I’m willing to kneel.
Through your lips escaped that very last breath.
I swore by my soul it would be my death.
The look in your eyes as we said our goodbyes.
I was shit out of luck and straight out of tries.
You were the rich hood rat who dropped to my place.
The rich hood rat that put eternity’s kiss upon my face.
A rich hood rat- so pleasantly deceiving.
Leading me everywhere you know I’m perceiving.
Lost in your hymn, lost in your voice.
Lost in an echo that’s not my choice.
So frail and gray, you’re the riches of this world.
So low to my level the quicksands have swirled.
Sinking now deeper, you can never escape.
You’re the rich hood rat who’s claimed my fate.
Through my life I must thank the Lord that he made me.
Through this time I must thank you because you saved me.
When it hurts so bad that not even time can tell.
I want to say thank you, my angel, for giving me this hell.
You see, personal hell manifests within our minds-
Within that sacred place where you can still be mine.
My hell was a burden- too much to endure.
But it taught me the desert’s waters are pure.
Its sands to soften our greatest of sins.
Its beauty to reflect our being from within.
My hell- created from a time I learned to fail.
Where deepest and darkest nights shall hail.
Like missing your family- your mother or father.
Like watching your bullets scar your dearest brother.
Like fading until the imagery becomes transparent.
Going, going, gone- no other can share it.
Thank you, thank you- you gave me this pain.
Thank you for this hell- none of it in vain.
No price too small, no price too great.
No price exists I’m not willing to pay.
I’ll scream I love you but I’m silenced by the sound.
Of a careless whisper that says "she’s not around."
I love you, and I can’t say anything less or more.
Maybe one day I’ll find my body on that desert floor.
