lyrics

today is condemned to be
another useless day of writing
about what i feel
through stilted lines filled with half rhymes.

as if i could graph our problems
through a sin wave placed on x and y
by plotting out my points
and connecting all the dots.

i’ll take the earth under my feet
over the woman of my dreams
who turns to dust any time i try to touch her

at least underneath there are fossilized remains
something sturdy i can stand on,
in my dreams there are only

chemical displays of my poor misfiring brain
chemical displays of my poor misfiring brain

my poor brain.

why haven’t we succeeded in keeping the earth clean?
for years we wasted water like well-oiled machines.
and they said it didn’t matter if we kept our luxuries.
so why haven’t we succeeded in keeping the earth clean?

the earth clean.
