Check Your History

We had our summertime
Now it’s all grey skies
Believing my own lies

Walked a frigid mile
On some crooked line
Though You’ve hit your stride
I’ve loved lost and lied

Dive in with both feet
What you do is key
Words they fall short of deeds
Can’t this trial just proceed?

Saviors won’t arrive
Faith can make you blind
Stand here silently
While you Check your history

It’s bound to coincide
With some wounded pride
A wave of pure denial

Watch it linger here
Twisted Solitaire
Like some billionaire
Let’s shed light on his plans

False hostility
Moral Vagrancy
Watch your life skip a beat
Don’t forget your receipt

Down through space and time
Counting on Decline
You can’t trust though you’ve seen
Have you checked your history?

We still have Summer times
Under autumn skies
Believing my own lies
Man-made satellite

Bend both space and time
Cosmic paradigms
It’s your street Plant your feet
Take your turn grab your seat
Young man learned the word
Was Johannesburg
Still a crime that exists
Close your eyes make a fist

Saviors all agree
Dive in with both feet
No strength to deny
The Stranger here inside

I’ve been driven here
Someone took the wheel
Let me stand aside
A rare passive slide

Turned it on a dime
Flipped my head in time
Be that thing you need
As I’ve checked my history
