live, cry and die

hard working patriots
engage the world on a trip
to wastelanding

they’re climbing the mountain
upside down and dragging we all
with them

fast forwarding backwards
the road ahead lies forgotten
missed out on their backs

and we’re the ones swimming against the tide
because their waves lead to a self fulfilling end

they’ll die in the sand and cry
they’ll rot in the sand and cry
they’ll lay on the shore in fright
because the ocean they left behind
is too much for their old & tired souls
who are afraid of drowning
they’ll cry on the sand and die.
