Fighting With My Own Defense......

"Vindicated"
(by 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

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

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
So let me slip away
So let me slip away...
So let me slip against the current
Let me slip away
Slip Away
Slip Away
Slight hope
It dangles on a string
Like slow spinning redemption...

Oh.
My.
God.

Amy, for all the shit I give you, for all the fun we have, I need to tell you this is possibly -- no, it is -- the best thing you've ever written.

I am in awe of it after even the third read through.

Damn. This is unbelievable.

Thank you.

--Seriously
