My best friend
No greater joy I have found in any, other than you
God's truth I speak, for all my words are true
Take my soul to Nirvana
Take my spirit to Utopia
I confide in you
My deepest secrets I sing to you
A boy becomes a man now
And I am lost in the focus of joy town
Drowning in my thoughts
Sucked into the vortex of all my faults
The happiness in my heart is limitless
Yet there is a dark cloud over my head of sadness
Psyche swims deep, that some cogitations become intrusive
Other times, I have lofty dreams anything far from repulsive
Who I am and what I am, only my best friend knows
Cutting loose my restraints, I am where the vicious eagle goes
A man is now an island, his spirit now the ocean
Ample liberation for the mind in uncontrollable motion
Bliss to the tender heart, darkness to the mind that breeds a sinister notion
The solitude I trust
For it shall never betray me
With you at my side, I fear no bust
With the savagery of the heart, the world could not tame me.
