Future Self

by The Globes

Tripping on wires on the way to the door I give up to the ground and sleep on the floor I want nothing here I want something more from you Change the controller to get out of this view I'm fucking around with nothing to do I want something new I want something more from you This time I'll join you all Where you go and where you fall Now that there's a place to go I'll try to stay awake
When did things change in me? How did compassion turn into apathy? I'm a stitch and I refuse to keep shut I can see the world in me The long rusted chain of humanity I am rust and I deceive and corrupt You're corrupt Look what problems do to me Why am I happy in immorality? Oh I'm a stitch and refuse to keep shut So shut up In search of future self With no regard to current cells Why oh why do I want to become something else? The hope of syzygy is kept at bay by lethargy Why oh I why do I want to become so complete? Looking down from a hundred foot drop I can see the beauty... I am a stitch aching to split
Black crow, perched on a wire Calls out the names of the demons I've known And his voice echoes onward Deep in my heart, through skin and hard bone I feel a ghost Inside my lungs Telling me to run I want to feel young and hopeful But no spark inside me will ever catch fire When I die, I fear that I'll die alone If I lose my grip on the people I've loved To be a ghost Oh to be alone With nowhere left for me to go I fall back to your arms With every day, with each long night that passes by I feel my ghost, my fears fall into place
Hey there, where do you come from? Face up facing, brown eyes fixed to a poor tired world And hey there, what better get on the stick Or there won't be no more grass blades To whistle through your fingers No more green stuff (tripping through barefoot) No more tall pines (to skinny up to the top) No more good causes (to hold up) And no more love
