It’s a Matter of Record/Opinion

Tell me something meaningful
and make sure I believe it
before you double down my debts.

Then dance in your pride and vanity.
Then dance in your ignorance and vanity.
Then dance in your shaken identity.
Then dance, then dance, then dance
in vanity.

Pat yourself on the back, pat me on the back,
pat myself on the back, pat you on the back,
pat us on the back, pat we on the back,
pat them on the back, I take it all back,
I take it all…

thin air, thin air, thin air…

There are ghosts in the system,
ghosts in the visions,
ghosts in the world,
ghosts in your pores,
ghosts pouring out…

Smoke in your eyes, smoke in your hair,
smoke on your tongue, fire in your lungs,
fire in your heart, fire, fire, fire…

always burns…

thin ice, thin ice, thin ice…

All your sins have been collected
from a life you didn’t live
so pray to the gods of Big Data
and confess that your days have been numbered
drifting through the endless stream,
scrolling through the timelines of life,
searching for the source to find connection.

Tell me something meaningful
in every single moment
and make sure I buy, buy, buy
but never sell…

out and down, down and out…

never doubt, never doubt, never doubt
that there is destiny
and there is dust in the…

thin air, thin air, thin air…

There are seeds in the ground,
there is blood in the roots,
there is will in the shoots,
there is power in the bloom.
