I had questions that never were answered when it appeared that I knew it all, about everything under sun's spot
Pearl handled six guns strapped backward, underarm potions to disguise the foul baking odor of fresh anguish
Forever and days past the AM/PM that Earth failed to wobble, rotate the .45's, dressed to the 9's, last ones out

More than the conventional straight @FakeNews, this need play sad and sassy music, in melancholia for life
You don't know what I mean if you're younger than sixty, you may never know because culture is crashing slop
Into the inner sanctum cave walls with the shadows of the real, living, moving things that are the part of the strife

If you know a reason why you exist in this space and time on Earth and you know you're going to die, your blood
That's the game, to find the Truth before you die, before you can't act out the play and the curtain closes for good
Not because you wanted to be mortal man or woman but because you are a recollection of history retrograding

Kicked my four year old arse into the ditch with my beat-up mother and left us there without a thing except my hat
I used that cowboy hat from that day on when I made the music that country singers sang, got me a buck, I'm fat
It's not so cool that you and mama loved each other when I became a human's conception, in fact ipso facto kid

When you get inspired, you better sit right down that very moment and record the idea, the fleeting thought's gist
How it happens that you are thanking the gods or your own concoction of the infinite, invisible, formless One's fist
Only the fact is that I am either an evolved mass of dead star matter like everyone else or I'm a god in a jail cell

I broke up our bond together because my soul was bleeding to death in the middle of a puddle of maudlin puns
Of course I experience the pleasure and pain of happiness and suffering, accidental or intentional feels identical
Needless and unwanted desire for the opposite of happiness becomes the dreamer of a sleeping, idiotic moron

Amazement in utero, that's where my being was inside my mama and papa, deep within the DNA genome's 'chi'
Compared to the stillborn babe and the septuagenarian or octogenarian, I am a babe in the woods eleven by six
Doesn't take much to stay away from death a hundred and fifty times, just to be in the right place at the right time

Attack nobody's life or view of reality or you're destined for hard times in a cruel world of instant cyber retribution
Get down into the middle of the mummy's dust within the sarcophagi and used to mix an elixir of Original God-sin
Swagger on two legs or wheel-cycles matters as much as living by your father's rules of the Old World ordering

Miracles happen every day without you and I knowing a thing about it, it is not for us to know reasons why god's
Evolving, revolving, wobbling and rotating a mass of hydrogen and oxygen gas in liquid form, amino acid soup
Your mama and your papa are all there is and there is nothing else except the pursuit of happiness and powers

Windows all wide open letting the breeze blow away the pain and sorrow of the rotten bushel full of rotten lime
Lost olive trees overrun by the rose bush-trees with a scent to high heaven, waking up God, the angels and time
Leaving this space, all there is to deal with, no heaven above or hell below, nothing but this flesh and bone frame
