The sky bursts out with flames
As the sun fills the blue with red
Reflections hold the deep blue frames
Of all the salt tears the sea has shed.
The sound echoing back from rock caves
As he crosses the field of sand
And the constantly reaching waves
Touch the new and foreign land.
They reach out for his shape, and touch
Then pull back, captivate but still free
Waves touching again, but before it's too much
They roll back into the sea.
His eyes are bound
His look is empty, blank as death
He wanders over sandy ground
And smells the salty sea's breath.
The warmth of the air turns into frost
His fists at his side turn into steel
As he begins to remember what he's lost
And as he begins to feel.
More painful than a stitch or broken bone
Something buried deep inside
Tells him he's alone
And tells him to give up the fight.
And when all the hope is lost
His look wanders around
His steps move on, no matter at which cost
His heart tells him to follow the sound.
A sound that's in his ear and rings
