ThThe Unshining Star
East of elsewhere
three paces from the sun
Watch the compass
It points to oblivion
You cant walk on water
But you can live through rain
When I stumble later
Will there be any pain?
East of elsewhere
Summer sky behold
Watch the compass
Let darkness unfold
Amidst everything
Thatís left is this
A lamp to shine through
The pseudo abyss
East of elsewhere
No stars lead the way
Watch the compass
You might be back someday
Short of nothing
More than that
Iím no longer bright
From where Iím at
This is I (>sigh<)
The unshining star
Whoíll be East of elsewhere
From where you are.
