ACT II: SCENE 1: GOD OF GAPS

The rain is hard, what little falls,
Much like the harvest, he recalls,
And things get harder all the time,
And moreso when you don't have a dime.

Life is drawing on a close,
Nothing to lose and nothing to show,
So many questions, so much to ask,
The great creator, the God of Gaps.

He tries to fight it but rain breaks him fast,
His feet split open on broken glass,
And mud seeps in, under his skin,
But he cries out, "It's not the end!"

God hates humble men, god hates them,
Sorry, that's why he creates them,
Full of love and full of passion,
They are not worth his compassion.

You fight through life with a broken sword,
Never respected, never adored,
And you knew all along you would lose,
But the easy way out you just couldn't choose.

God hates humble men, god hates them,
Sorry, that's why he creates them,
Full of love and full of passion,
Never to see his compassion.

God hates humble men, god hates them,
In his boredom he creates them,
Hardships sworn to bring them down,
Fuck the cross and fuck the crown.

God of Gaps, in all his glory,
Tore the page out of this story,
Left the braggart to consider,
Left the humble man to wither.

about

The Ugly Facade Texas

We live our lives in boxes, with little glowing screens. We fill our blood with toxins, so we can deal with things. And sometimes, more than often, the bitter masks the taste. The fruitless failed reflection: what if it's all a waste?
