Anxious Rumination (Song)

It could have been me

Life measured in inches

Decided in seconds

Lost time now

 

Another round of shots

To forget the rounds before

An ocean away

To whom it may concern

 

Who will bear witness to this funeral

What will be written on your headstone

Tears flow in vain at this wake

For a life long past

 

So much skill

Yet blindsided by foul luck

Just meditation in the deep pit of

Anxious rumination

 

(Chorus)

And what worth is held by thee

Another fish in an endless sea

Just one of countless casualties

Anxious rumination

 

Your life ends time now

 

A brilliant flash

Of such a short life

Pints raised where there’s no light

A crack of noise rings in deaf ears

Crimson vision

No fear

 

You made it out

Over blood and stone

Fortune held for you this day

A long life for your survey

Yet you know you died that day

 

(Chorus)

And what worth is held by thee

Another fish in an endless sea

Just one of countless casualties

Anxious rumination

 

Who will bear witness to this funeral

What will be written on your headstone

Tears flow in vain at this wake

For a life long past

 

So much skill

Yet blindsided by foul luck

Just a meditation in the deep pit of

Anxious rumination
