Scars & Stitches

Can you remember
What the future held
A little candy ring
In a mystic oceanís shell

They were anesthetized
Slowly washed away
Left all the poison in
The sands in which I played

I donít mind falling down
And scraping up my knees
Scars and stitches always fade
And only strengthen me
With my eyes as wide as pearls
My only centerpiece
Is taken like the dead manís urn
And tossed into the sea

Write me a letter
And dot your iís and cross your tís
Nothing was everything to me

Under the monsterís claws
And in between his teeth
Was the shadow and a silhouette
Of what I thought Iíd be

I donít mind falling down
And scraping up my knees
Scars and stitches always fade
And only strengthen me
But with my eyes as wide as pearls
My only centerpiece
Is floating on the oceanís bed
And floats there endlessly
Well itís taken like the dead manís urn
And tossed into the sea
