I Bring A Life Of That​.​. To An End

from by Kai Straw



Written/Performed by Kai Straw
Additional vocals performed by Lauralee Poe


I want to say so much,
but sometimes words aren't enough,
sometimes our tongues can't dance or tap
a rhythm that can express all that's within them
for at times, in a word can live
not just a thought, but a metropolis
and if not magnified, they're dismissed
as just vowels grouped with consanants,


I’m not a simple person, but I don’t think anyone is,
an ant constructs a labyrinth without ever really knowing it,
and a spider forgets it’s artistry, and it’s the one who’s sewing it
So here’s to not knowing the supposed growing vastness
and being one of many ants, victim of death and taxes,
and to the tapestry likely sewn due to all of the actions
of us people, and being fine without some purposes to back them

See, I feel cursed at times,
cursed as the disconnected,
it’s as if, to my own life, I must remain objective
Like every frame, of every second, dancing across my eyes
are just that, a show, and to my soul they’re merely televised
And I’m stuck in this theater of the senses and cognition
forced to view this life pass, like a projector full of pictures
I want to fall in love, feel some connection with another soul
but maybe in another life, I think, if ever at all

There’s so much shame involved in everything I’ve done
they say mistakes make you who you are, but, I liked who I was
So here’s to the future, and here’s to you
maybe you can learn from what I’ve done in this pathetic human suit

But, maybe, with a chance,
We’ll begin again
