Impossible

lyrics

I hear the band call
I see the stand-off
this wound’s dismantled
and there’s no time off
god I wanna be free
you’re impossible to seize
everything’s leaning on me
you’re impossible to please

I hear the band that they call reason
I hear processions resound all season
there was no music in the feeling
of existence in a climate that was
neutral by design as it
could not boil or freeze
on the un-bending knee
suspension before sneeze
contrast/polarity
this needs to be wrapped in your system
with binding chemicals that mirror
a barrier reef composition
of math vs mystery
disaster proportioned in leagues
mapped in the cosmic orbit
incredible that this fits
confounding collective wits
pretend to understand it

under our skin
it’s all under our skin
by the hair of our chin
it’s all under our skin

you’re impossible to please
we subjectively perceive
there’s no -right- it’s relative
let go of your certainty

they had a leader they called jesus
she was a drag queen who performed
great services
distilled molecular convergence
biology of belief
matter obeys what we think
I forget that I’m complete
equipped to command my fleet
but it’s impossible to see!
chase in circles gradually growing
you set me up for disarmed treason propelled by self-fulfilling prophecy
you set me up for dependency
made sure you’re the only one who knows how to fulfill my inextinguishable needs
you love me dangerously
