Man, I'm crankin' them out lately :biggrin: Wrote this one this afternoon.

Pressing through pouring rain
Trying to rearrange
The pieces that make up my tapestry

A dormouse comes to greet
Standing there at my feet
Breaking my piteous reverie

chorus:

And though I'll never know
Why some will come and some will go
And valleys fill and mountains fall
I'm just trying to give my all

Running against the grain
A martyr falls but not in vain
I think... but how much can I say for sure?

Then I remember a fateful day
When I told her to go away
Even though I'd never known a love so pure

chorus

instrumental break

Pressing through pouring rain
Trying to rearrange
The faded pieces of my tapestry

A voice calls, breaking through the rain
"The martyrs have not died in vain"
I take the mouse's hand, we run away

chorus 2 times

I sing back into my reverie
A brief respite in my naiveity
Consciousness known for brevity
Then the world will finally let me be
