  1. wind and flight. silver swift and impersonal crimson
    save me save me save me- didn't you know? no one has ever heard you
    child child child. take one step and then another- never sane and never lost- this is the way

    they have only ever seen red
    red is blood
    red is power
    red is legacy

    don't look. don't look
    sorry. so sorry
    turn away child, can't you see?
    that one is broken already

    red fire and endless chasms: the world lives on-
    and I know the axis of calamity
    save me save me save me


    save me save me
    save me, still I cried
    save me, I hoped in the darkest of shadows
    still here and not yet gone

    save me, they raged
    still here and not yet gone
    save me!
    twisted and torn.
    caricatures of children and imitations of humanity.
    never quite real.

    save me? here and here.
    take a step then another
    every face I see myself
    I find my twin in the mirror's eyes
    all that I am: made again and again in a child's eyes

    this is rage.

    this is silence.

    this is fear.

    this is what it means to be forgotten

    this is what it means for harsh reality to bed a childhood

    this is defiance

    this is what it is to be alone

    this is what it is to be branded
