A Long Line

a long line from nowhere is inching to nowhere
I hang my head and I spit and soon I’m stepping on it
this could be profound or the act of a serious clown

I loathe that back of that head, the skull shape mirrors my dread
I loathe that breath on my neck, of stagnant humanoid

hey evolution
we’re stuck in a rut, we’re stuck in a rut
we’re not the solution
we’re makin a mess, we’re goofin around
when will you direct us
we’re ready to rip, we’re ready to roll
to climb on the short bus
we’re makin a face, we’re blowin a fish
the leader of our line
he’s mad as a hat, he’s short of a load
is picking his behind
he’s pickin his butt, he’s pickin his butt
and sniffing his fingers without
the slightest reaction at all

a long line from nowhere is creeping along to nowhere
the landscape doesn’t reflect the hardship born on this trek
my toenails jagged and chipped were once pink polka dot

hey you, evolution
we’re tearin it up, we’re tearin it down
we’re not the solution
we’re rockin the boat, we’re tippin the scale
when will you banish us
we’re takin a hit, we’re takin the blame
down under the surface
we’re diggin a hole, we’re beltin a tune
the leader of our line
he’s pettin a goat, he’s head over heels
is taking his sweet time
he’s makin a move, he’s gettin a kick
to fall off the edge of the earth
it’s gonna be crazy to see

hear the cry of unfamiliar pain of a newborn child
taking in the air, taking in her mother, taking in a small circle of this place
maybe there’s still time to hang up some new vines
to gussy up in green the fallout of our dream

maybe there’s still time to put it all behind
to sort of recreate the original state
and quietly we’ll go with violins in tow
it wasn’t meant to be, now we’re off to Honalee
