from by Cousin Brian



There is a spot unfilled
there is a half seasoned mind that won't forget
there is a blink of hope
there is a sense of compunction that calls me home

I feel the same old lines that I drew before
and that I can't concentrate now, for fear I'll die
Is there an ignorant head so I can cope with mine?
although the lives of me would still be gone

Part of me finds some comfort in believing that
finally I'll reach the land
Don't fall down tonight
and keep your thoughts with me
I'm betting on pain tonight
and so I ought to bleed

We have the curse of life
an animated freedom to change its course
it hurts to wonder why
and we don't need to make do
or feel obliged

I sing the same old words that I sang before
because the things that upend me
will never die
I hate to think about failure so soon in my life
but it's not wise to believe I'll be alright
