To Reflect

from by The Absolution Sequence

/

lyrics

Trembling hands hold the picture frame
Tears fall upon the glass
In the reflection, a lonely old man
Trying to find within, restraint from total breakdown

Envying ideals of youth
For they are a stark reminder
Of a time chosen not to reflect
Of time in service
And the repercussions

Sleepless nights, dreamless sleep
All the time in the world to think
Yet remembers less everyday
Memories come in waves
The onset of decay

Knowing hope will fade
Knowing hope will fade


Remembers less everyday
The onset of decay




The workers present
The most precious possession
The last link to familiarity long gone

And so a vision creeps of mother
Holding the tiny hands of the brother
Looking upon the face of new life
And in wake
20 years reverse

Trembling hands hold the picture frame
Tears fall upon the glass
In the reflection
A lonely old man
Trying to find within, restraint from total breakdown

Envying ideals of youth
For they are a stark reminder
Of a time chosen not to reflect
Of his beloved
Once held in his arms

“Where is Gloria?!”
She sits in acceptance

In acceptance

Stroking old strands of grey
Saying “everything will be fine”
And then she disappears
Into the frozen night

Screeching for his wife
The end of his fading life
He knows, its time
