S.O.S.
poison chosen for the cure
monkey crawling up his back
only thing he knew for sure
fooled and failed and blood turned black

and by the time he figured out
the rules he'd never once reject
were fictions told by crooked mouths
they'd sunk their teeth into his neck

poised and muscled for the change
but unprepared to deal with none
lick the devil's cup again
perhaps in time the change will come

and by the time he loved himself
the god of gaps had turned the page
the book was closed and on the shelf
the story fell apart with age

poised and muscled for the change
and unprepared to deal with none
and as the story ends
perhaps in time we all stop singing

the same old song
we'll rise again
we'll rise again

lay me down
i'll rise again
i'll rise again

hanged and drawn and torn apart
by social contracts and control
the sum of all my bloodied parts
worth more than i was ever whole

take me down below the hill
put the rifle to my head
sing the song our father's sang
say the prayers our fathers said

no one leaves this place alive
so let's hurry this along
i'll rise and rise and rise again

till we're tired of singing…

the same old song
we'll rise again
we'll rise again

lay me down
i'll rise again
i'll rise again

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?
