Icarus

Seems like you just
Started noticing
How noticably bad things really are
And when you walked past this couple arguing
In a rolled up window
Of a parked car
And all of that
Gesticulated bitterness
And all of that
Muffled yelling hell
Its dark just starts wafting at you
Like a big fury rat died
Inside of that wall kinda smell

Breathe like it’s rolling like a cold front
Thunder is thundering and lightening in tow
And your tiny little life gets
Even smaller
As you heed the heaven’s mighty show

And I don’t mean heaven
Like god-like
The animal in me knows very well
Nature is our teacher, our leader, and our lover
And God is just another story that we tell

And you’re trying not to grasp-not to start grasping
At straws -or sticks- or stones
Just learn how to sit inside your sadness
Even if you’re sitting there alone

It’s just like icarus ascending
Never intending to look back
Nature’s law and your tragic flaw
I find descending
Flying into the arms of a venus flytrap

Guzzle till the buzzer stops
Guzzle till the buzzer stops
Guzzle till the buzzer stops
Guzzle till the buzzer stops
Guzzle till the buzzer stops
