Ropeladder

Framed by a window

Portrait for the night

Shielded from the pirates of social decline

A flask for the future in a bag

And the rope ladder swings in the wind that could fill up my lungs

Poised for adventure

Raise my finger to the sky

Reflection of the room looms and dooms magnified

My face frowns in a cause for concern

And the rope ladder swings in the wind that could carry my wings

The infinite weight of the solitary night (x2)

In descendence of a long-haired princess, locked in a tower

Waiting for release and rescue and power

Her feet were craving the ground

And her diet of fear routed her there to be found

The infinite weight of the solitary night bares light

The moon she washes my dry

The infinite weight of the solitary night bares light

I’ve got to get out tonight

And that window with a hole from the challenge of a role

Took a blow by blow

Leaks the breeze in the form of the news of the night it’s my truth

Whispers its dreams on my skin

Fills my lungs like balloons

And they know the freedom to feel lighter than air

And safety became restraint

The rope ladder swings (x 2)

The infinite weight of the solitary night bares light

The moon she washes my dry

The infinite weight of the solitary night bares light

I’ve got to get out tonight (x2)
