Tooth And Nail

Post by audiofool » Mon Jun 12, 2017 6:08 am

It's not a matter of when
it's not a question of why
tomorrow's gone in a flash
today's just passing you by

I've heard talk of change
some things stay the same
I see you doubling down
the smoke and mirrors game

I came by invitation
that's my name on the list
a strange initiation
the rituals persist

hold on to something
clutching at every straw
kindness rewarded
love is the higher law

the word on the street
it's the talk of the town
you wear with pride
a disapproving frown

tomorrow's gone in a flash
today's just passing you by
remember way back when
yeah, and neither do I

hold on to something
tearing at the veil
a house worth repairing
every tooth and nail.

Our existence is a flash in the pan (a metaphor from the old days of photography). :cool:
