Album
Name of Song: Collecting myself from time

Pieces of myself,
Strewn along my past,
Combining it back with who I am now,
Such a lonely task.

I find myself in a duality,
Is it conscience, or other selves,
Carefully wrapped in amnesia,
That lurk in hidden shelves.

Chorus
Collecting myself from time,
Those can’t remember selves,
So hard to make the past seem now,
When I’m in another shell.
______

What are these other selves,
That lurk in hidden vaults,
That refuse to show themselves as real,
And never seem at fault.

My constantly yearning conscience,
That I trust to keep me in line,
Is it just the honor I earned before,
But now I don’t know why.

Chorus
Collecting myself from time,
Those can’t remember selves,
So hard to make the past seem now,
When I’m in another shell.
______

Reconciling differences,
Reconciling self,
Holding to who I really am,
The answers locked in shelves.

This seems to be my mystery,
Of what I’m searching for,
My lonely hope that my past will show,
As I search for self and more.

Chorus
Collecting myself from time,
Those can’t remember selves,
So hard to make the past seem now,
When I’m in another shell.
______

Chorus
Collecting myself from time,
Those can’t remember selves,
So hard to make the past seem now,
When I’m in this other shell.
