Read Your Mind

I wish I could watch people's lives

From beginning to the end

Find all their secrets and lies

And see what's left to mend.

I wish I could lurk in dark corners

Corners of their minds and hearts...

Find all their buttons to push

Find peices of life ripped apart.

I want to find the monsters

Monsters in dark places

I want to see the scary collage

Of all the old faces.

I wish I could see intentions

Read minds and know

Just what it means

What they do only for show

I want to face their evils

I want to fight their pain

I want to light the darkness

I want to stop the rain.
