On a night when it's clear I swear you can see God from here breaking his fist against the walls holding court in his halls "Where did I go wrong? Where did I go wrong?" Meet me in the sunlight where dark things don't creep and hold me until I'm holy or at least I get some sleep the sadder days are coming and we'll meet them in the street with blessed vows and a kiss goodnight we'll make our retreat to the blind side On a night when it's clear, I swear you can see God from here

I've been watching from the high winds losing patience losing ground I've been moving along the iceflow just waiting for the world to go down I've been washing the feet of sinners all day long all year round I've had no time for a cup of coffee It's time to pack my shit and get out of this town Sorry to leave this way what can I say? I'm exhausted down to my spirit through muscle into bone I know there's no easy replacement but I'm burned out you're on your own Sorry to leave this way what can I say? What can I say? What can I say? You can't make me a better offer my mind is clear I'm out the door I've given you the best years of my life and in return you always want more Sorry to leave this way What can I say?

By the time you get this letter I'll be some place better Because I'm jumping free You don't have to watch me leave I'm walking away clean my slate pristine By the time you get this letter I'll be some place better Meet me in the sunlight where the dark things don't creep and hold me until I'm holy or at least I get some sleep because the sad days are coming and we'll meet them in the street with blessed vows and a kiss goodnight we'll make our retreat By the time you get this letter I'll be some place better On a night when it's clear I swear you can see some place better from here

about

The GodCreatorArtistMagician looked through the clear night. He was alone. He felt the urge to reach into the darkness and make joyous life. He dove into firmament and danced. He played in the raw matter of the universe, throwing shapes and forms and breathing life into all corners. He set one of his favorite little blue worlds to spinning. On it he started the process and watched as life emerged, changed, learned and grew. Paths in the water became tracks on land. Tracks became trails. Those became roads. The buildings became taller. Then, in what was a blinking of an eye to The GodCreatorArtistMagician, his Creations slipped from him. He felt hollow. The Creations he hoped would be as overjoyed living life as he was creating it... weren't. They killed each other. They stumbled toward oblivion with every wobbling step. The GodCreatorArtistMagician wanted no more of it. He couldn't stand to see The Creations decay. His heart broke too easily. He decided it was time to walk away. The Creations didn't really need him anymore, anyway. The GodCreatorArtistMagician wanted to find a new place, somewhere is his canvas, his expanse. A new place where he could finally wander, wonder and find joy again. He said his quiet goodbyes and took flight. The GodCreatorArtistMagician moved out into the universe through the vast fabric of reality, eventually finding a small shining world with a sky filled with the churning, glowing power of creation. A sky shimmering with light and joy. Every day the birth of stars filled the expanse around him. The blazing engines of life burning, burning, burning. The GodCreatorArtistMagician was happy.

When The Creations returned home they found a note from The Creator. He had gone to find its own happiness.
