Treasure Island

Jaryd Stapleton

(Born Aug.19th 1988 - died March 12th.2007 / Durban, South Africa)

The sun sets on the horizon


The sun sets on the horizon
And you change your mind about tomorrow
Every time I try to convince you otherwise
All I get is a slap in the face

But every time you don’t listen to me
The sun sets on the horizon
One by one they fall to your wrath
Your bag of tricks and smoke fools everyone
But the change in the world is small
And when everything is said and done
The sun sets on the horizon

You lure us into your trap of honey
But soon we sicken of your taint
As no one can keep up appearances for too long a time
And when all your resistance crumbles
The sun sets on the horizon

And every time I try to explain to you
That you are your own demise
The result is always the same. Always nothing
You can’t even save yourself at the end of the day
There is no future. There is no past. There is no one else
But the truth is: there is no you. Not now. Not ever. And not when
The sun sets on the horizon

poet Sir Walter Raleigh

EVEN such is Time, that takes in trust

And pays us but with earth and dust;
