The Plague Of The Mind

Never before had we been so…

Never again would we be so…

It was our undoing
We were so right
Everyone had an opinion
No one wanted to die

As if we have a choice

comic relief

But then I wonder
maybe it’s me
I just think
I’m the one
they’re coming to see
but really
I’m nobody
and neither is she

And we’re all waving wildly
saying we’re free
with pinwheeling eyes
upon a vast sea
our bodies
our vessels
food for the fishes
we live in our heads
we live in our wishes

And what a treat
this new reality
and if the cost
is the end,
well we know
it’s not free
and for once in our lives
we can remember what’s free
all thanks to a plague
we can remember to be

So don’t be afraid
if your time has come
And don’t be afraid
of the fear that you run
your caught up in your head
and you’re body’s just dead
and you’re mind
has you trapped that’s no fun.
