he said
"it's been good kid but I 'gotsta' go
fulfilled just as the prophecy told
quick, grab a shovel and toss the first load
cause I found all the answers
and can't risk forgetting"

so, mr. "soul" got his wish
and left the planet with his face aglow
but I'ma tell you right now I'd switch
cause in the moment he was
holding on to something to "know"

and I delve down deep into secrets
sink more than I dig more often than not
but even other times I've found peace
in things you believe to be false

I'm a piece of scenery, just a piece of scenery
and seem to be a grievance
for the people that are keeping me
increasingly incredulous and that's an "estimate"
for pessimism creeping up upon and defeating me

he was plagued by the same trials
that linger for millenia and take minds
incendiary ideas embrace mine
till I have seen the light

soon I'll be fine
and soon we'll be cool
cause in time
I can know you

we are the keepers of inadequacies
laced in the fabric of reality
imagine me, nothing but a knot
with a tight grip on everything I've been taught

cause the man can only be exposed to so much
and with the notion of such,
he closed his mind unabashedly
and passionately pursued the few ideas
that actually packed his head to capacity

and he's lacking any real zeal to change
but 'least he feels it, even if it being in vain
and he seems all right, cause most 'round town
see him as such, and see him as same

but he probably is though
and probably doesn't think so
and probably never will
and that's what makes it so true
he's just a man in the mix
in a world where everybody's independently
discovering pain
