One Way Out

Don’t seek that which is lost
In the chaos of things
Don’t chase that which has passed
In the chaos of things
Don’t raise that which is dust
In the chaos of things
Temptatious 

Don’t waste a minute of time lamenting how life isn’t fair
How what it’s given and what it’s taken could never compare
Don’t hope it’s warmer around the corner
Be brazen and audacious


Despite all your eloquence I’m still none the wiser
You are not a prophet but a poor advertiser
Speeching, overreaching, like a liar saying everything twice

Oh how hard I wish your mouth just rebelled against you
Ate your words, licked your lies and properly cleansed you
Bit into your tongue and made you choke upon your own advice

It’s built with our own two hands
Our hell is our own
Our ultimate imprudence
Our hell is our own
So tenebrous and moonless
Our hell is our own creation

And when the infinite thread of time can no longer stretch
And when the last of the echoes finally reaches the edge
Your little tale on a larger scale won’t be part of the equation 


The world is a maze
A windowless place
With only one way out
And maybe a simple
Matter of fun
Is what it’s all about
Just a universe bored in its eternal existence
No companion, no lover, no jury, no witness
Just an infinite bigness, desolated and windless
Terrified to exist alone 

Despite all your eloquence I’m still none the wiser
You are neither prophet nor a good advertiser
Speeching, overreaching, like a liar saying everything twice

Oh how hard I wish your mouth just rebelled against you
Ate your words, licked your lies and properly cleansed you
Bit into your tongue and made you choke upon your own advice

So shut up quick
Shut up quick
Shut up quick
Just shut up and dig
