You're so gone

by Peter Dolving



I wrote and recorded this a thursday afternoon/evening.

The reality that surrounds us is making feel very tired and sick of it.


You are so gone

You play your part and you play it so well
take such wonderous delight in not paying attention
you're no one in particular

You have no real repsonsibilities
there is no one to hold you accountable
who would that be?

We are so content in the corners, or so we've decided to describe our shared reality
Hey oh, you're so gone. No one belongs.

Make no illusions you have fully retired.
Before you even tried.
You're a teenage drop-out midlife crisis.

You have no real centre, no truthful core to you.
You are merely an actor in a story bout not making waves.
I hope you choke on your comfortable nod.

Some say we play it by ear, but it's more like we dodging the cane
Walk slighty crooked and bent to avoid any attention
say yes Massa! I'ssa good slave I'ssa gone do right by you.

Strap yourself in tight and screw on the required attire.
Speaking "Quotish" like children do, no understanding here not if you help it.
Blur it out in a great white noise and la-la-la it away.

We are so safe here curled up in the corners, or so we've decide to describe
our shared reality
Hey oh, you're so gone.
Hey oh, cause no one belongs...

Convenience is everything in the new world and so move only to keep up appearance.
Visibility sure beats an actual sentiment with folks like you for friends who need enemies?
All these so called mature opinions that changes nothing.

I say off with their heads, like the queen of hearts and wave my black flag of defiance.
If this means the end of me, so be it, I can't live in a world without love.
So fuck you believers and your slavementality, domesticated and passive
consume only to justify your continued existance.
