White Knuckles

from by White Sails



I've tasted and I've seen universal fantasy
Perfect self-sufficiency
No lack, no need--access to everything
But resulting disappointment makes it's home in my heart

Standing at the edge of golden kingdoms
Infinite potential in their open arms
Offered the keys to the world
Will I possess it, or will it swallow me?

Chase the sparkle in the depths
It draws me deep, and then it fades
Toiling over acquisition
Suffocate beneath the weight, up to my neck in lies

Hell is empty promises

Standing at the edge of broken kingdoms
Infinite deception in their open claws
White-knuckle grip on the world...
Do I hold it, or is it clutching me?
