In Pieces

from by Cyril the Wolf

about

New cartoon obsession. Lapis Lazuli - constantly trapped and controlled by others. A bit of a character piece asking some questions about what free life would be. I actually adapted this from an older piece called "Beast Unleashed"

lyrics

Have you stared into someone's eyes
Only to find your reflection inside
Does that mean nothing else is there
Or are you just a piece of their design

When someone's pieces have been lost
Worn away by the sands of time
Does the tide wash in and leave behind
Another pattern to be ripped away

Actions speak louder than words
But Is there something else I should say?
But you won't leave me when I tell you
you won't let me do this my own way

Chorus

All I ask is for another chance
To live on my own terms again
All I ask is you accept my repentance
Maybe then I'll even forgive myself
You wanted to know what goes on inside of my head
If I knew, I don't know where I'd begin
Before you came along I was trapped and mislead
With only my reflection to keep me from going insane

Chorus

When someone's been left behind
Their pattern has been ripped away
Do the tidal pools keep their reflection
Or do they get lost in the flow of time?
