Not Even The Trees Will Remain

the crispened leaves are coming down

like it's just another fall

but autumn angels are clawing at ground

as they're dragged down into hell

 

not even the trees 

will remain

no early birds

singing at dawn

nor even late ones

will get the worms

no,

so,

i'm gonna crawl in that hole

in that empty, empty hole

where we're all gonna go

we're all gonna go

we're all gonna go

when not even the trees

..remain

live ahead of the curve

and make myself a comfy place 

live ahead of the blind curve

and make myself a comfy place there

 

the thermocouple spits sparks

cause it's just another day

all who'll listen, it's not unprecedented

just a spiraling, sweltering spell

 

yea, the thermometer geysers

but this is not an anthem to Greta 

or smashing guitar against her birth town

you don't get it yet, do you?

 

not even the trees 

will remain

no early birds

singing at dawn

nor even late ones

will get the worms

no,

so,

i'm gonna crawl in that hole

in that empty, empty hole

where we're all gonna go

we're all gonna go

we're all gonna go

when not even the trees

..remain

live ahead of the curve

and make myself a comfy place 

live ahead of the blind curve

and make myself a comfy place there

 

a day will come

where fortune tellers

screens go black

and static fills 

the weather forecasts

and Siri can't answer

any of your questions

nor can the bunkered,

soon to be entombed

wise men,

politicians

and heirs to misfortune

 

we all like to hide

where lightning strikes 

twice

where lightning strikes

twice

only because we are all

twins

twins with our past

 

a past we can't remember

because the past is dead

replaced by scrapbooks 

we call ancient history

mostly scattered in the wind

 

not even the trees 

will remain

no early birds

singing at dawn

nor even late ones

will get the worms

no,

so,

i'm gonna crawl in that hole

in that empty, empty hole

where we're all gonna go

we're all gonna go

we're all gonna go

when not even the trees

..remain

live ahead of the curve

and make myself a comfy place 

live ahead of the blind curve

and make myself a comfy place there

I Liked

"And Siri can't answer " That's pretty incommunicado. A song lyric. Poe would like the never more theme. I did.
