Thinks this thin skin
never enough
overwhelming
been feeling it too
all the way through
nerve-ending
this kind of thinking
keeps doing us in
come back to begin
watch something die
start something new
window is shrinking
forever no time
we have hope for
the things we hate
we really hope
time is what it takes
slowly ticking toward
event horizon
where no light escapes
without purpose
we all but slide
across this surfacE.

Across this surface
we all but slide
without purpose
where no light escapes
event horizon
slowly ticking toward
time is what it takes
we really hope
the things we hate
we have hope for
forever no time
window is shrinking
start something new
watch something die
come back to begin
keeps doing us in
this kind of thinking
nerve ending
all the way through
been feeling it too
overwhelming
never enough
thinks this thin skiN.
