lately it seems the end
is where we begin
and then we pretend nothing happened previously
short term memory loss
at a cost they won't remember
repeater offensive, call it dimensia
growth is hindered
and then the culture is rendered useless
altered to falter
if not fail completely
damaging hands were the planning committee
they laid the grid for a throwaway city
where nobody needs a future
nobody misses the cloud of witness at all
generational overlap generated a gap
too big for a handoff to happen
old heads try to test limitations
new heads embrace innovations
two regimes with no dialogue in-between
no common ground it seems
'85 Marty McFly can't survive
when crossed over to the Biff Tannen timeline
worst case scenario design
living in a Barry Lyndon state of mind
bold and coldhearted
so it's best not to get me started
on our dearly departed art
outside benefactors of the journey
keep it up like Weekend At Bernie's
dead weight dragging dead weight
how does an expressionist keep his head straight
while observing that?
we were in love
but i was an eagle and you were a dove
this flight tonight leaves us uneven
one of us going where the other is leaving
one side is always waiting for the miracle to come
and the times keep fading
making ambiguous forms
all waiting for the moment to swarm

chairs missing
on your feet for this edition of our audition
casual demeanor
blessed with the best aspects
of a beautiful dreamer
that remain unchecked
nurture nature
keep the greater good overstood
the likelihood of upward development
is much more prevalent
when our connections are relevant
share common elements
nobody has to spell it out
'cause it's obviously evident
so we take suitable time
to acknowledge it while still viewable
my interest is always renewable
intense but always truthful
aging but always youthful
entangled but neutral
flawless flotsom
true definition of awesome
lost son of Gotham
born in the darkness that you adopted
that holds you hostage
