There is an impossible distance
Between myself and the other
An insurmountable distance
That I will travel forever

I see upon the horizon
Glimpses of angels
But as I see the sun rising
They transform into the fallen

It is not for me to say
Whether this journey will end
I know only that I have lost my way
And my journey has yet to begin

It is impossible for me
To know what I will become
But I can say with certainty
My transformation has only begun

So as the sun beats
Its ceaseless drums
Burying me under its heat
Reminding me I am not forgiven

I walk this impossible distance
Trying to find some repentance
