We Met In Alcatraz

from by RALEIGH



Weapons founded by defunct minds
Disengage us in blinking lights
Pulsed towards earth from satellites

The longest fall (Bound down)
Couldn’t take back the call
The shortest flight (Blazing)
Human oversight
We set the course
Made the gears

In the cracked desert light
A mirage of this life
Our kaleidoscope truths
View the Powerhouse Bloom

Losing direction (Reaching arms from the black lake)
Not without consequence (Sinners regrets and mistakes)
So many questions (Throats covered with stone)
Like, will we still falter in love

Freed inhibitions (Moving deep in the dark night)
How can we live without (Culling with no thought or oversight)
Feeling our own conscience (Processed, pressured, and finite)
Fill the prescription for us

Rewritten archetype (Reborn out of the blood moon)
A futureless compromise (I know now I’ll eclipse you)
Left to our own devices (Watch the horizon fires)
Feeling no wrongs or rights
