Lyrics

Not long ago, and yet the image is so vague I hesitate to label it a memory
There was a show of local color and I felt astray 'cuz I had nothing to offer but insufficiency
And you know that it's a bitch when you learn to scratch that itch of blatant fallibility -
sooner to some but eventually
All gets pointed in the same direction while the human masses and their vague conceptions obliterate
each other with impunity
And you wonder "what's in this for me?"
To another abyss - to no avail
The search is bound to fail
To another abyss - to no avail
So long as I set sail and it chills me to the bone that I'm so far away from home
To another abyss
So what should I do now?
What should I celebrate, given finite means and a penchant to depreciate?
How can I still avow and depend upon a state that cares nothing for my happiness, welfare or fate?
And I know I can't explain the commotion in my brain
Like a terrifying reality deconstructed but inadequately
All gets pointed in the same direction while the human masses and their vague conceptions obliterate
each other with impunity
And release the weight of history
To another abyss - to no avail
The search is bound to fail
To another abyss - to no avail
So long as I set sail and it chills me to the bone that I'm so far away from home
To another abyss
