    Selfish

    i'm sailing on this ship of forgiveness
    and forgetfulness;
    regretting decisions made in past lives.
    and yes i know the past is past - 'a bridge to nowhere' (thank you Sufjan Stevens) - but my days are still numb.

    numb,
    numb,
    numbers are all i see these days.
    i'm still counting down 'til the farewell clock strikes (!)
    striking me into a sigh of relief.
    and believe me child i truly am sorry for your...

    breakdown.
    but i have my own life to live.

    i am the captain of one
    on this sea of forgiveness.
    i pray you forgive me for my selfishness.
    i pray you still love me despite my hurtful words...
    after all,
    the past is past...
    (right?)
