Such a shame to let loose That I have absolutely no clue what I'm doing But pretending seems to work so well; You all claw at plasticine symbols The letters deplored with a swish of the ink well.
Calligraphic self destructions mean something to somebody Over an ocean with eyes so slight as to shine in the darkness, Glinting in robes of black on the rooftops of rich dynastics And the rhymes of yesterday creeping to the forefront, Reminding me just of how hopeless hopelessness is-- The assonance of a retreating boxcar Is steaming into the backdrops of consciousness.
Is it time to rewind somewhere? The visages of paintings only mean so much To the blind bats on cave walls in cavernous reaches Of static television snow drifts.
It seems that you and I have come to the biggest of filamentous rifts: Sifting between now and then we have mind-skips Of epic proportion, a sickened distortion Of all of the children left in their contortions It's all leprosy in my eyes Since the skies are burning down as we pinpoint abortion.
And we release that defeat, and try to find meaning in it all:
A lie of great size Told from my lips yet it was-- You who believed me.
Together we made a chimera A deception even worse than anything I've ever known I said that some god had told me all the things that that that--
I can't begin to begin an apology My mouth mummified by request next to Jeremy Bentham I only wanted what's best for you-- But look at what you've done! Oh, Crusades! Oh, Crusades!
Children don't lie with your eyes on the sunset For Nietzsche is the ultimate navigator!
And you finally catch sight of the top of an alligator floating in the oil, staring at you slanted eyes smiling cruel.
It all makes sense now, what half believed lies That explain how the darkness will come to rise But the opposite side of our crystalline marble Has known all along, they knew all along!
Facing the east, wasn't He? Then even he knew Perhaps what I said was not all untrue And in fact the fault lies with Him Not me, Not you.
