Mortaljive: The Rest is Silence

There is no still point in all the Universe, and that is the rock upon which I stand

Sharks in Heaven



i lost my password
it's under the bed
i will not retrieve it
until i am dead

one day i will use it
to climb in the dark
a door will swing open
and i will embark

i will fly endlessly
just like the sharks
just like the sharks in heaven
the sharks in heaven
we are all happy there
we are all friends

i lost my innocence
in my father's rage
mother too busy
to help turn the page

sometimes i fix the past
with duct tape and glue
it's sitting in boxes now
unlovely and blue

but i will do anything
to brace up the walls
lead me to paradise
the old man, he falls

and i will fly endlessly
just like the sharks
just like the sharks in heaven
the sharks in heaven
we are all happy there
we are all friends

there are no prisoners here
left to escape
the jail is a ruined thing
the ruin of fate

i take off running
like a child in spring
i see the cliff coming
i can do anything

and i will fly endlessly
just like the sharks
just like the sharks in heaven
the sharks in heaven
we are all happy there
we are all friends
