Soaked in the season
Having trouble breathin'
Maybe it was treason
To look here for meanin'
Clawing for a reason
Don't wanna be squeezin'
Calamity, to show me the way

Depending on which defense
Demonstrating your girth, your right to be fed
Keeps the spirit alive, keeps the toes on Earth
Deep ending on the pretense
Disinterested by truth, head straight for a vein
Where pain passes as roughly only I shall remain

Go to the end of the line
Gather force as you must
Or just don't follow lines
Blaze trails and thrust
Beyond acquisitive reasoning
Past dispositive preening

You mean more than money, are more than a voice
You keep acting funny, you will not get a choice
So as it goes (And it does go, believe me);
Reap what was loaned and accredit your foes
Get with the times or just sleep in your bones

Go to the top of the heap
Sever heads as you must
Or just don't flash your teeth
Praise shackles and rust
Beyond oppressive seasoning
Past objective feeling

Pretending for dissonance
Defenestrated at birth or not right in the head
Keeps the demons inside, keeps the throat from thirst
Defending my innocence
Dispossessed by youth, both feet in the grave
Where time passes as roughly only I shall abstain

Locked out of Eden
A troublemakin' heathen
Looks like we're even
All lockjawed, no Úlan
Scoffing at my freedom
Looks like I'm squeezin'
Abjectivism, to show me the way...

Chock a block with well chosen words that carried me through at warp speed only to go back to the top and begin again! Twice!

For Breakfast
I had it for lunch. Wonderful rhyme and bounce. I read a bit but had more fun reciting it aloud and feeling my tongue bouncing off the roof of my mouth.
Thanks my friend - for a geat ride.

It is like a news article written as philosphy...makes my mind go places with each stanza...

"Get with the times or just sleep in your bones"

A great line, keeping it real.
