Analog Tape Recorder

Life's dark poem
Forever singing in the black abyss
Yearning for love and understanding
Only to be rid of it once more

It's a natural obsession
Something to fear and love
Objects to hold and covet
High upon the ultimate summit

I can't help myself
Nor can I stop
Fingertips start to feel numb
Now I only wear gloves

Because the house is burning
With no one around
I lie here by myself
Wondering where it's all gone

With cups and string I try to hear
Blaring distortion from some netherworld
Beyond space; beyond fear
One lonely bear without any kin

Anger rose up inside
Swelling hate unlocked with pride
You mocked me like a child
Before I died in drought

I am an empty lake
With trash and discarded limbs
Breaking down bones
And eroded skin

My conscious mind evaporates
Like morning dew in July
Only a few months later
Did I feel what I did not see

Solidarity made things clear for me
And how I needed to be
Don't ever apologize
I know I'm the that is sorry

I spoke to you last night
Inside my little dream
Where everyone had melting faces
Hating, like sprinkles on ice cream

Repetitious I have become
Something like an endless dream
You await death in eternal
But please, please, open your eyes and see

See what I have always seen
