lyrics

[Verse 1]
The meridian between joy and sorrow
Crossed by the equator, a few feet removed from my nadir
A flat parabola was suggested for whatever success is
Defiance reinforced the redoubt, a valiant effort

Told to step outside of it, meet the tenants
Of a settlement full of pessimist folks in need of penance
Been there before and have yet to heed their lessons
Inhale their atmosphere and breathe congested

The tapes became loose from often repeated messages
In essence fatigue, from stress indeed, overdue to set in
Signals that were overcompressed
Aimed at the tympanic membrane, loathingly hissed

Made of galactic matter, when the nova hits
I'ma blow up like V838 Monocerotis
Shrink back to size, get dense and spin
A teaspoon of my thoughts the opposite of what it says on the tin

Was shaken, not stirred from events
Seeing that the grass was dried brown on both sides of the fence...


[Verse 2]
A heartbeat away from letting a woman lead me astray
The machine broke, thank human engineering it did
Never did I think to glean hope
From the failure perpetrated by the person that had made it, me

There is still room for improvement
There usually is, so I try to reduce Newtons
Saturnine look on my face, mercurial ways
Introverted, penning my cursive, see I just need space

Escapist tendencies, my sanctuary's dreamscape
Always shrouded in green clouds when in between takes
In tune with my past, so the vocals may phase
Waterside, thinking back to how it felt to be treasured

Mutally induced and reciprocated coldness
Eventually burns the bridge spanning pain and pleasure
And I was on that bridge when it fell
Nothing awaits beneath, not even hell

You can slow the descent, but approaching the end
Serenity sets in, now you're afloat in the winds of change...
