FADE IN FADE OUT

Daryll Phillips 1972 (Scranton PA)



As we live the everyday life
By waking up to the sound of the alarm
We head to wash up
Wash away the sleep
Wash away the fears
Wash away the tears
The orange soap you use falls into the sink bowl
It looks like a goldfish floating around
Swimming to the rhythm of the day as a whole

We have friends, acquaintances
Come into our lives
Some fade in like in a dream
Some fade out when you don't realize it
