I hate this fractured carousel with all my poisoned heart
I want to change the world, but I don't know where to start
though every step is agony, I cannot choose my path
for the future is relentless & it's always last to laugh

the universe is
in your head, which is within
the universe

Mind is caught up in the mesh
Into this labyrinth of flesh
Never knowing why it's there
Options narrow to despair
Theseus without his string
Another sacrificial king
Upside down & overboard
Running from the mighty roar

my questions bring no answers, my answers bring no cheer
my ambitions are frustrated, there goes another year
& this life seems so uncertain so permanence can wait
but now the temporary's stretching into something that I hate
