im going blind


 

one ring to rule them all
one ring to find them
one ring to bring them all
and in the darkness bind them
Lord of the Rings

one ring to burn it all
where should be two
diamond platinum gold
why not
copper glass or stone
one ring is all it takes
to grow a monster from a soul
to break a moment in two
past and future
to rob it of a present
one ring for the clown suit
one for whatever we wore inside
one ring to throw, one for gain
spin it around, pour your life in
and watch it dissolve
into time dust and rain
quick if you know how to see
there are no magic rings
none at all
just you and me
and an invisible promise
