Track Name: Minerva
You missed the whole thing
It was a whole thing
I could’a seen you
I might say I needed you
But you only ever arrive
Long after the rise
Only once the sun has shown all it cares to see
Then it's just you and me
When that boiling heart
Goes back to sleep
Then you and I can start
But only after dark
But Minerva
I saw you in the day, was I just--
Or was it just a mistake?
I saw you in the day, was I just--
And now it's forever noon
But it feels like
Perpetual twilight
Dawn dreams of a steady flux
Of infinite dusk
Dark lust for your insight
Athene owl live dated thoughts
When the action stops
All day anticipating your hindsight
(AJ Thirdo): Delphi, yes.
Rest your troubled chest.
Unless you make amends,
You’ll never reach the end.
Unless you make a mess,
You don’t deserve the quest.
So pound upon my tree
That I may know your inquiry
And with my gaze, eclipse
That greater nightly lunacy
Away from day’s immed’acy
I see what light will never see
In night’s short talon grip
There’s only this soliloquy
Of open flutter vowel
My humblest of redundancy
(Ben): Minerva,
I saw you in the day
(AJ Thirdo): But Philo, I was there
My Delphi, you just got scared
