Inspired by Future Man; the first line of part 3 comes from the name of an old-age home.
We are the past
captured in a moment
we’re endlessly trying to escape
The things we’ve left behind
will not be there when we get back
What keeps us returning to that well?
My name is a tether unbreakable inflexible
a reminder of something captured
in a moment I carry with me
however hard I try to leave it behind
before the well runs dry
The cliffs I peer over are hidden
but the drop still scares me to death
Which ocean are you?
