A Past Life

lyrically close the curtain on me twice
and i’m hurting me
it’s nice when the family leaves, when the family bleeds
right
when i’m washing my hands of calamity
call me Mr. Philanthropy
captain catastrophe, Los Angeles redacted
Japan had me at the factory
no, when i was 17
no, when i was unclean
it shows me that the powers have needed
the ones that couldn’t read it
feed the fires that burn ever at night
brief respite
from words that are meaningless, the answer couldn’t free me
but i know the worth inside, the earth it flies freely now
do you see me now God
now that the love has gone cold, now that the wonders you behold
have turned the hourglass inside there
inside where, it’s cold and i know the time has come
to bring the one
the only dust, the hellish lust and the King, he’s what?
an animal?
you cannot have the language though
you will not sow the seeds of doubt
the realm says no, yeah i would know
and i’m wondering where the grief givers go
fetch me the water, call me the father
lure me to the hot gates of hell
feed me a fortune that no teller could spell
please, no
i am the one the truth finds
i serve the Goddess and she lives blind
in the rust, in the trees, the dust, it bleeds
slowly now do you see the meaning that breathes me
the leaves and the kings meet
the oceans that parted, the dance that has started
innumerable objects fall down from the ceiling
the cosmic conundrum that has me reeling
it has me feeling, the noise inside
the sun will guide
and while we are out wandering
the men lie there, deceiving
plans fail, and cities fall, the love fades
we had it all
no abrupt endings to the passage of time
no dark tunnels that end with a white lime
fuck dying
you sit there wondering where to cut lines
where to end
nowhere, no rush, earth mends
no time, hush hush
and all i wanted was a toothbrush
