Something ain’t right with these pictures I’ve found.
Too many distractions, flashes, and sounds,
but with your light the echoes all fade away.
Fast to react. Changes grow.
Asking to map actions, so
I wracked my nodes.
Acts in the past,
etched in the bone.
Strapped to the throne,
asking to back.
Bask in the glow.
Back from the facts
faxed to the foes.
Passed with the slow
axe of the brash
After the science you put it in a pill.
Ask for compliance and tell em what you will.
Passed just for trying to get em on the grill.
Factor the triumph and back to the mill.
That’s what you get.
If you think you know better
you get up and bet it
or let it regret. It
won’t better the head if
you get it you get it,
so set and forget it and back to the kill.

Swallow the light; wash it away.
Bottle the light; watch it break.
Swallow the light; watch it break.

Still can’t find it.
Still can’t find it.
Still can’t find the light.
