Time Immemorial

lyrics

the club the fire
the warmth the kill
if I was anything but a molecule spiralling
spinning & changing
in the path of nature's way

flesh of the sunburned
taste of the almighty
leper of the colony
that couldn't survive
off the diseased and mutated

lest we decide how to live
lest we confront how to die
the power of coming
as close to nothing
before believing that belief will save us

In the ages before words
had a man looked at himself
as not worthy for life
and in despair
take it into their hands to end it

contemplation of suicide
a gift to man to use or not
when we decide to live
fully and nobly
then who cares if death comes to end it
