Part 3 of the "Drawing a House in Perspective" suite.


Open the door, push you in
Time for one of us to come clean

Where did you come from, why the drought
Why did I choose to help you out
Pull the blind, lay you down
Warm fire and you shiver
With back in blankets, the table's set
Your knife drops, I hold it instead

Open wounds, open eyes
Dry blood paints your scars
Shaking hands, will you wash off what was done
Pick you up, to the water, soak and sleep it off

Is there no clue? What should I do?
I don't know a single thing about you
Curiosity draws me to explore
Look inside of the jacket that you wore

Open wounds, open eyes
Dry blood paints your scars
Shaking hands, will you wash off what was done
Dreaming in the water, remember what you lost

On a photo you smile at me, children and a woman right beside
Contact on the back, matters you have left untied
She picks up, short trembling words, she must have never heard
This is the one, so well, I know, I tell her where to go

The ones who love you now know where you are
They set to find the man who left, and left them with a scar

Hours pass, he awakens, puzzled and confused
Cuts still deep, joints still weak, but now able to move

Door bell rings, there she is, I go to let them in
Descending steps, he sees her face, and something stirs within

Kick in the brand new door, have a closer look around
Though nothing is different here there's a lot new I have found

A different time with different life has a silhouette so near
We return to see the change, the differences so clear

The lovers are the criminals are the heroes from afar
Dismissing the details that make us who we are

In a whim of shock, he loses grip, falling to his end
Realized, quiet smile he lays at the final step

Open wounds, open eyes, dry blood paints our scars
These are the details that make us who we are
On closer look there is no new under the sun
Steady hands, have you washed off what was done
