Fix your blank stare on the screen
It's the optic coup-de-grace
I am told keep my distance
This eternal prank of the scene
With an everlasting draw
Is our piece de resistance
You found himself mortified
In a state of casualty
But your senses stayed complete
While you were left horrified
We moved on to better things
Now you partake in discreet

Fixation turn us aside
Gotta bring us back to health
Everlasting joy denied
Not a love which can be felt

Still, down the road lies a home
Where the broken go to heal
And the better go to serve
This humble abode, relapse prone
Has its track marks to reveal
And its secrets on reserve

Searching for the stellar high
But is it ever ours
Stare at the image and cry
My god, it's full of stars
Out of action, in disguise
To settle up the score
Slipping through unrecognized
Mistakes could lead to war
