Rome and Hell
We're really pretty different Rome and Hell; you and I
My ego is overwhelmingly strong You think you're ugly and wrong
Though reality says I'm nothing Though truth reveals you're beautiful
But we have some common ground And by that view, we'll be bound
I just want someone there for me You just want someone to hold you
I seek out my precise wont You know how to get what you want
Can your desires be mine? Can I show you what you truly wish?
The road to you is wide indeed I'm not sure I'm everything that I need
Where can I find you? Why can't you find me?
I hunt through the day's light You search in the dark of the night
I look west while you scan east I hope we're not back-to-back
Anyway, every way I try You elude my seeking eye
I can see myself, wandering alone But my view of you is obscured
Should I cure my wanderlust? Will that clear your image rust?
I should identify what I'm looking for So I'm not stumbling blindly
I know you're there, Rome It says so in this tome
I try to trust these words There must be truth in them
I stare at the books and read And the lexis tells me to lead
But where can we find ourselves? However will we be together?
You just want me to hold you I want you to be there too
I hold my Hope above my head To radiate upon this world
No one will ever see it, though It shines an invisible glow
I Hope one day you'll see it And I Hope one day I'll see yours
We should try opening our eyes To destroy our fantasy of lies
I Hope the day comes soon Where we meet beneath the stars
And care not what happens Too bad the future all depends
On that never occurring For if it does, it will mean the end
But why should the end be avoided? I want history to be voided
Nothing good ever happened Unless it was the result of Hope
And then that required badness Which only led to sadness
I search for you, I lust for you But I'm trapped in wanderlust
But in the end, we'll be together We'll make the world's true nether
