Sweet Meteor of Death
I’m so tired of trying to get ahead Give me that sweet meteor of death I’m so tired of living on the edge Give me that sweet meteor of death I don’t know how I built up this vision of paradise I never ventured past the veneer It’s the best foot forward and we want to buy in We’re all complicit broadcasting to all of our friends Face value is laced with how you get the angle right Paint away the faintest lines that may betray the cracks But it still rips raw when you relax your frontal lobe Comatose, you know you’re open to attack from Two-faced jugglers, too late to play nice with one another We gotta overpromise, smile a lot and hope the bomb hits When you’re not there to clean up the mess for y’all’s kids The apocalypse will see us sitting on our asses Refreshing the page, saying, “This too shall pass” In the aftermath we’ll discover we’re really bad at math Too reliant on gadgets, we can’t even cook pasta fast I’m so tired of trying to get ahead Give me that sweet meteor of death I’m so tired of living on the edge Give me that sweet meteor of death Concrete is nothing to pre-cambrian rock We came and we saw, made a lot of money and raised the alarm The fate of the farm wasted away and our cities are gone To dust with this vein of quartz still scraping along Geological timescales are great for nihilists Nothing matters in the end ‘cause forward motion’s tireless Why is it worth trying to focus on the finer points Why resist when we know the sun’ll fry us all to bits? Night and day, sunshine and rain, predator/prey There’s always two sides to a story if you’re willing to change We may have granite cliffs standing here since time began Even they will find water and wind wearing them down to sand How easy, then, for pavement made by human hands To be fractured by a tiny weed willing to take a stand? How impermanent borders are, how hollow bureaucracy How paper-thin the laws, policy, locks, and keys I’m so tired of trying to get ahead Give me that sweet meteor of death I’m so tired of living on the edge Give me that sweet meteor of death It’s a slow burn, when will the folks learn? This planet will leave most of us roasted post-turn Of the century, I can’t envision 2100 When there’s enemy thunder coming for any of us – no sir Which fire will be the one to end the economy? When we’re all gone the borders will turn to botany If a tree falls in the forest it’ll be free to die No more fussing over the meaning of life I’m so tired of trying to get ahead Give me that sweet meteor of death I’m so tired of living on the edge Give me that sweet meteor of death
