I'M OUT OF MY MIND

I'M OUT OF MY MIND


tell me again
i'm out of my mind
no one understands
i don't understand
i'm left all alone
is that what i want?
isn't that what i want?
i'm out of my mind

condition worsening
why am i the only one getting older?
i forget
tell me again
who brought me here?
i'm out of my life

no one's left, that is true
i don't think about you
except right now
as a matter of fact
we think about each other
at exactly the same time
but i'm out of my mind
how could i be in yours?

tell me again
i'm out of my element
my vessel has risen and departed
leaving me hopelessly stranded on a planet
over-saturated with carelessness
it seems certain
my new role on earth is gone
back to nerve endings
arteries and tissues
dermis and follicle
bile and plasma
i'm out of my mind

i have not learned from experience
file away another thought
store away another goal
replace one goal with another
condition worsening
organ donor, check yes
except brain
no one will need it
it's just a pile of discarded 1/4 inch tape
tell me again

my only purpose was my belief
it was not enough
god? father? fathergod?
outer space ends here
look at my finger
godfather?
no
god?
father?
no!
