The Heart can Articulate. Enunciate. Speak.

I am Captivated yet Vindicated.

with one comment


I am not sure but there is this feeling of being true, a feeling of being innocent, a feeling of being right but yet it feels like I am being captivated in some sort of prison. It is a weird feeling indeed. Sometimes I feel that I have too much on my plate and sometimes it feels as if the plate is empty.

Fight between the two is definitely a deep one, 
 Feels heavy, You know like a ton. 
 I would live no more if either of them are slain,
  These stupid two...the heart and the brain!

(Original thoughts from a stupid hungry brain)

Captivated yet Vindicated

I don’t know if you have heard this song but it does makes sense to me right now.

Vindicated – Dashboard Confessional

Hope dangles on a string
Like slow spinning redemption
Winding in and winding out
The shine of it has caught my eye

And roped me in
So mesmerizing, so hypnotizing
I am captivated

[Chorus]
I am Vindicated
I am selfish
I am wrong
I am right
I swear I’m right
I swear I knew it all along

And I am flawed
But I am cleaning up so well
I am seeing in me now the things you swore you saw yourself

So clear
Like the diamond in your ring
Cut to mirror your intentions
Oversized and overwhelmed
The shine of which has caught my eye
And rendered me so isolated, so motivated
I am certain now that

[Chorus]

So turn
Up the corners of your lips
Part them and feel my finger tips
Trace the moment, fall forever
Defense is paper thin
Just one touch and I’d be in
Too deep now to ever swim against the current
So let me slip away [3x]
So let me slip against the current
So let me slip away [4x]

[Chorus]

Slight hope
It dangles on a string
Like slow spinning redemption…
