"Fossil"
By Nell James

From another place Iíve seen a face of yesterday and beyond
Drunk on fossilized youth through darkness, out the dawn
He shatters all the years that fall between the now and then
A moment that will know its life many times again

Endless hallway to what was then
Living always, heíll never end
And he will lend himself to confusion
He will bend himself for illusion

A ghost transcribed his spirit, left on parchment to be seen
Knowing nothing more or less, his face remains serene
Of all the figments of the past, that I could file through
Of all the songs and words been said, Iím glad I know of you
