Orgasms of Gloom

 Orgasms of Gloom  copy

Orgasms of gloom convulse the world

Follow your bell-button 

to the green pasture.

Shave the feelings off your heart,

There’s nowhere to end 

There’s nowhere to start.

Just do the things  that

you were shown

and don’t let the things

become your own.

Feed on the fruits you 

don’t want to keep,

Because the world taught us

that life is cheap.

Abandon your history, 

meet in the fire, 

On a low road and a high wire

you’ll quench your desire.

Stay out of the sunshine,

Stand in the rain, 

What hides within the anger

pays for the pain.

Walls burn, changes turn, 

leaving you naked and bare,

Appoint someone other than you

to be the one to care.

Buy another record upon

which people sing,

About the ultimate resignation

that living brings.

Life could be a party

You forgot to attend,

While your days hung in the

balance, and you 

were on the mend.

And for an instant,

it will all seem real,

Despite the fantasy

and the ill-fated deal.
