Verily, Verily, I Say Unto Thee!

So, I started out wanting to make an important statement about human hypocrisy. But you know how that goes. As a mere mortal myself, I’m easily distracted…

The deception with tact
Just what are you trying to say
You’ve got a blank face, which irritates
Communicate, pull out your party piece
You see dimensions in two
State your case with black or white

But when one little cross
Leads to shots, grit your teeth
You run for cover so discreet
Why don’t they

Do what they say
Say what you mean
One thing leads to another
You told me something wrong
I know I listen too long
But then one thing leads to another

The impression that you sell
Passes in and out like a scent
But the long face that you see
Comes from living close to your fears
If this is up, then I’m up
But you’re running out of sight
You’ve seen your name on the walls

And when one little bump
Leads to shock miss a beat
You run for cover and there’s heat
Why don’t they

Do what they say
Say what they mean
One thing leads to another
You told me something wrong
I know I listen too long
But then one thing leads to another
One thing leads to another

Then it’s easy to believe
Somebody’s been lying to me
But when the wrong word
Goes in the right ear
I know you’ve been lying to me
It’s getting rough, off the cuff
I’ve got to say enough’s enough
Bigger the harder, he falls

But when the wrong antidote
Is like a bulge on the throat
You run for cover in the heat
Why don’t they

Do what they say
Say what they mean
One thing leads to another
You told me something wrong
I know I listen too long
But then one thing leads to another
One thing leads to another

Resulting in a statement that is, at best, a little ambiguous…

And pointing, not towards salvation…

Maybe someday
Saved by zero
I’ll be more together
Stretched by fewer
Thoughts that leave me
Chasing after
My dreams disown me
Loaded with danger

So, maybe I’ll win (saved by zero)
Maybe I’ll win (saved by zero

Holding on to
Words that teach me
I will conquer
Space around me

So, maybe I’ll win (saved by zero)
Maybe I’ll win (saved by zero)
Maybe I’ll win (saved by zero)
Maybe I’ll win (saved by zero)

So, maybe I’ll win (saved by zero)
Maybe I’ll win (saved by zero)
Maybe I’ll win (saved by zero)
Who needs to win (saved by zero)

Saved by zero

But towards more uncertainty instead…

End the end, I guess it’s every man for himself after all…

I want ice water.
