Answer Without a Lesson

Catcher in the rye
catching falling souls before they die
crying when souls escape me
broken from what they cannot see

Hear fair lovers dreams
Filling you with tortured screams
Crashing waves of the sea of fears
filled with children's sorrowful tears
Hear them whimper and hear them weep
When you wake and when you sleep

Elude me answers to eternity
Slip through my hands, reality
Sea of darkness cleanse my hands
As I stand upon your sands
Time upon butterfly wings
Angel of death rises and sings

but did you learn the lesson?
