I never knew it 'till it passed
Was always covered in a cast
I was constructed of a cloth
That couldn't last

So now I'm barely blood and flesh
Just an anatomic sketch
Coming to find this may be as solid as we get

Well that's just what they'll keep me
But what'd it ever get me
But a fumbling peace of mind?

I heard they hunt it down in droves
Something they'll never really know
Guess I was just another stone
They couldn't throw

I sent a letter to the state
That they could not transliterate
And felt the brittle gnashing teeth
Of "it's too late"

So what?
I caught it on a tripwire
The entire Orange Empire
And joined in with the crash
And swallowed all the ash.
