Opal Eyes

In this world

The puppets are changing

But by the time the players are staged

There are words I can't say

Caught up in the strangeness

Of a lust

That's driven and dangerous

Step away, step away

 

I can feel

That there'd be something between us

But by the time the final curtain appears

There are lines that aren't clear

Caught up in the queerness

Of a lust

That's forbidden and fearless

Step away from here

Step away from here

 

Opal eyes

Opal eyes you have to go

Don’t stay here opal eyes

Or I'll fall

I'll fall

 

In this world

The puppets are changing

But by the time the players are staged

There are words I can't say

 

What if we just rip the script

Write in a sudden shift of consequence

Ditch the make-up and the costume change

It wouldn't be Shakespeare but it would be real

And you'd feel it in the sea air

In the surf that washes through our hair

In the time that we spend getting there

But that would depend on the decision you make

While I'm standing here

 

So opal eyes

Opal eyes

You have to go

Don’t stay here opal eyes

Before I  fall, before I fall

Opal eyes

Opal eyes you have to go

Don’t stay here opal eyes

If you aren't brave enough to take the fall

If you aren’t brave enough to fall at all
