I am lost like humanity; similar to humanity
I am lost.
Opinions chime dictatorial since time
Here I am hanging on, assuming I’ll contradict current conditions soon
I am sustaining myself, providing means to maintain my own mental health
This soul’s situation is dire like the ones of most Americans you hear about
Basically: existential crisis meets financial crisis – the problem thus encapsulated
Humanity is lost like Jose; similar to Jose
humanity is lost.
Politicians squirm professorial since time immemorial
A violent revolution, I long to see it happen
Organizing mass action, it is difficult to do
Marching is a waste, just another stage for soul-sucking
phones to participate in photo ops
Akin to the Bible, I don’t have all the answers, if any
I am just a guy in a maze constructed by strangers
This maze, to navigate is no issue of the category trivial
Critical steps, each one, sometimes it’s best you don’t take one
Myself, I am a stranger though I have met a lot of people
Kept in touch with very few,
so now my social network’s feeble.
Of the human species I’ma member, a creature brought about by the hand of evolution
I see my circumstances and yes, if I had a loving God, I would ask for absolution
Faced with a life of mediocrity, I wonder if another decade’s gonna change that
My brother is suffering the same and I lament that I can’t change that
So, what can I do?
I’m smoking Newports like I’m Jesus taking no thought for tomorrow
