I can't accept your absolutes
order can be reassuring
and then leave you with no place to go
chaos may feel like you're losing control
but then lets you create
loving can seem like forever today
then tomorrow you'll be told "ah, no thanks"
an absence a reason for mourning a loss
or a chance to do nothing at all
and the spirit to one
may mean father and son
but where does that leave you and me?
