Encounters

Like an angel down from heaven
Like an apple from a tree
something came down to me
making worlds gravity leaven

My mind and soul
Bowing my head to kiss the earth
To kiss the whole
dirty soil for more than it's worth

This encounter I have made
it passed my soul
over the counter to trade
It passed my goal

Not on the inside though
only on the outside
like a guest denied
left standing in the snow

And it all makes me feel like
yeah at least it makes me feel
And it all makes me real like
fuck, at least I know I'm real

Because reality is cold
and so am I
Because reality is sold
and so am I

Encounters we will make
day after day
But not all of them take
the right way

So I head on full speed
against this one way road
Laughing while I bleed
like my body got a load

And it all makes me feel like
yeah at least it makes me feel
And it all makes me real like
fuck, at least I know I'm real

Real like the law of gravity
which tears me down like a crashing plane
Guess I feel the kerosin in me
exploding, driving me against the grain

And in my world it's all flames
And in my world it's all hell
In my world things have no names
'cause there'd be no one to tell

And it all makes me feel like
there is no tomorrow for me
And it all makes me real like
the lies from my banshee
