Chain Letter

I have been having a serious case of writers block this past week and wanted to post something (just because) ... so I found this in my ledger ... from 1982 ...


Don't take yourself too seriously
There are precious few things
Worth hating nowadays
And none of them are me

I was only trying to say
How things used to be
Till we grew up
And went our seperate ways
Looking for our own path
To immortality

This is how I thought
I'd start my song
And it seems a little silly
When I think of it
But now I am so far along

And no one really wants to know
That he's wrong
That his ears can't hear
Or that he's blind a bit
Or that he's really weak
When he thinks that he is strong

Now I'm in the middle
And I just don't know
If I'll make it any further
If the words don't flow

When you live in silence
Any sound is dear
But for those who don't take heart
Because the end is near

This is the ending of my song
It has made me blind
And deaf
And weak
But most of all
It shows that I am wrong

For you see that
It's twice this long
And if I should die tomorrow
It will carry on
