Pilgrimage

Post by audiofool » Mon Mar 23, 2015 6:43 am

All grown up
and no place to go
searching high
and finding the low

pinned my hopes
on a surefire scheme
backfire bites
we're living the dream

animated by
unseen directors
a house of mirth
no reality detectors

queue up for
the big assessment
the standards set
must be your own
all thoughts laid bare
no contrast can compare
picking clean the bone

never knew I'd
have friends like these
in the end I depend
on my enemies

for a sense
of my own self-worth
a pilgrimage
to the before birth

in total darkness
surrounded by serene
illumination
up on the big screen

in line for
a big promotion
I set aside all
my earthly demands
standing awestruck
bless my dumb luck
love's got other plans.
