Climb the Fence

Floatopia - Naoto Hattori


Climb the Fence

Sleeping through a waking state
Unaware of my surroundings
Stepping into a slow motion scene
Found motion so dumbfounding
Blinked my eyes and lost a thought
Thought came back an hour later
Spoke out the words I had to say
Found my tongue to be a traitor
Slurred, mumbled, mixed together
Even to myself I didn't make sense
The gate was wide open to me
But instead I chose to climb the fence
