Riddled

done with the riddle that’s eating through my time
can’t think of anything, all these brains entwined
it’s eating up life’s general sense of ease
day and night, hounding me

I know it’s time to let go
I know it’s time to be happy with all I have undone so far
well I’ll try, try

but just one more minute and I could break this wall down
make that one more hour and I’ll be sleeping real sound

I swear I’m done with the riddle that’s looking through my eyes
the answer could be anywhere, any shape or size
once I thought it was a guarantee
I was young, look at me

I know it’s time to let go
I know it’s time to be happy and ride out the universe
well I’ll try, try, try

but just one more minute and I could break this wall down
make that one more hour and I’ll be dancing around

I never believed the tail could be endless
always believed the head would be mine
in one more year I swear I’m done

I neeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeed a solution

try every door in the hall (no answer)
turn every stone in the yard (still no answer)
scatter a chicken’s entrails (no answer)
bark at the moon in a pair of silk bunny ears

swallow a skeleton key (no answer)
jam in eleven thirteen (still no answer)
follow a pegasus home (no answer)
throw back the head for a shot of infinity
