Headfirst

Two Feet Forward, Headfirst

Time and time again

Protected as we melt from within

What is it that you seek?

If the question of just why

Is the needle bleeding you dry

You’ve pricked yourself with botox

As god kisses you on the cheek.

In a closet tucked away in the dark side of the past

An idol stands tall and spreads his word freely

He’s got his head up and alert

but his eyes blink much to fast

I let stream this fire to protect my sanctity

“Congratulations, my friend, on being a man

I can see the hair on your chest but no dirt on your hand

Your head in the clouds

and three feet on the land

I see no life in your eyes

but I smell it expiring on your breath

You flaunt your prideful gut

I lament your living death

Go and live by your stomach

You’ll find you are what you eat

Nothing but energy burning

entropy in your universe leaked

Now rise to your feet

And live by your wings

No diamond studded feathers

Just the senseless will to sing”

Time and time again

Protected as we melt from within

What is it that you seek?

If the question of just why

Is the needle bleeding you dry

You’ve pricked yourself with botox

As god kisses you on the cheek.

In a town tucked away in the corner of my mind

A young boy believes that he’s seen the truth

Head in the clouds but his eyes do not stray

From his own secret

His fountain of youth,

he says

“This belief that I will save

In my pocket as I run

That no elixer alone depraves

As I turn my eyes up to the sun

And as I look down,

In the brief purple haze

The crowds masks abound

Switching in and out of phase

where is their true face

In this world of ups and downs

Signals and receptors, built to gain the crown

A thousand ways to run away,

escape our own regret

Sold by the faceless people

On every corner yet

Only looking skyward to the fire

will absolve you of your debt

And good luck finding he

who sells the pills to turn your neck”

Time and time again

Protected as we melt from within

What is it that you seek?

If the question of just why

Is the needle bleeding you dry

You’ve pricked yourself with botox

As god kisses you on the cheek.

Time and time again

Protected as we melt from within

What is it that you seek?

If the question of just why

Is the needle bleeding you dry

You’ve pricked yourself with botox

As god kisses you on the cheek.
