scales on the golden fish
the scales that measured your heart
I'm falling from a cloud
into a sea of bitter acids and unclean minds

will you derive from this
that I love you
I pray not
will you glean from this
that I wish you were here
I know not

rain falls like a dove from the sky
wispy tales of surrender
in your arms
whispering

"go anywhere
go anywhere
I'd go anywhere
with you"

and the scales on the golden fish
glitter and gleam and shimmer their sheen
I'm looking at you from a cloud
you're surrounded by acids and unclean minds

will you derive from this
that I want you
I pray not
will you glean from this
that I need you
I know not

and the rain flies away into the suset
the ravens of sunlight chasing the doves away
in your arms
I'll whisper

"anywhere
anywhere
is perfection
with you"
