time slips away...

and you and i travel paths

that split

and run divergent...

from these mountains

i can see miles and miles of choking smog

an empire in decline...

and i know that you are lost on endless freeways

trying to find a clear way home

we run in different circles...

light and darkness

day and night

saddled with our memories...

topanga in the summertime...

and two conflicting souls

who fanned the flames

then wondered why we both got burned
