The Ammonite

Crushed by a drop of success
Everything is going fine
I am happy in excess
I do mine

Is this how advance feels
Happiness for oneself alone
Shared only to give the appearance of sharing
Still trapped and dark

Each alone to do their work
For the betterment of the world
And nothing turning out how it ought to
My mistakes are most me, my successes dust

Look at this and cry
You are floundering once more
The base has gone out beneath you,
You’re spiraling

Nothing complete, stuck inside
No time for a wife
No time for friends
Waste of youth

Expressing yourself
Scribbling clever bullshit
Each and every
Each and every day

Listen to the wind through the trees outside
Don’t you think this is a ruined world
It doesn’t snow
No one says anything

And I keep my mouth shut
To work on my career
Sand in the desert
I am a ruin of a world

Nothing will change it
And nothing is good
It is the backdrop as they are fond of saying
And I guess I really am here alone

Cheers I’ll never see you
Let it all go again

All this time trying to say we live in a world
Take yourself as a model
But you are hard on yourself
And that’s unreliable
