into farewell sleep
into farewell sleep
----------------------------------------------------------------------------

into farewell sleep
drift and sift away from planes
of confused words
a refused world
into this dance of dreams
though you can't follow the sequence
close your eyes anyway
or in a way
into just forgetting all of these

into farewell sleep 
blink and vacillate and claim
a peace unheard
take all you're worth
and hover from all real
though time may have its own cadence
in minutes, hours and days
sever away
and just leave with me through Lethe’s breeze

accept and placate

make the empty mornings wait for you
transcending 
into nothingness
there is no home for the half-conscious
reverting
back to innocence

drift and fly away

so let me lead you
past the skies of remembrance
crossing truth with chance
quietly breach through
this reality’s semblance
somnolent silence 
close your eyes

into farewell sleep
with a million faceless names
in your feathers
free to wander
like goodbyes in the wind
though you’re trapped in ambivalence
there’s no real need to stay
no need to say
a lack of chains never meant release

drift and fly away


and i will lead you
past the lies of existence
crossing truth with chance
quietly breach through
the walls of your consciousness
past this discordance
close your eyes

and just forget

drift and fly away
into your sleep

say farewell
