Unsound signs

Strange things are going on and I don’t know what they are
but by and far they are the weirdest things that I have ever seen
and I’ve seen what I thought was the weirdest
in many a dream I had
was I
am I
going mad?

It’s still a picture show that’s showing
so if I’m going mad
it’s written in the script
and that’s something I never had.

And what is even stranger is the stranger I’ve become
when I see myself, I see myself
and all I want to do is run.

I cannot capture innocence
nor escape whatever tense this is to go back to
another time
this is all I’ve got

this is lunacy, I’d sooner see
the time I should be in.
