that good old fashioned reason to keep going on

bubbling up through the crude
the black and bubbling goo
come farting vapors and words
about eating at the ankles of misery

what fun
what sinister fun
grab the sunshine sitting on the shelf
and take a few too many so as to relapse

lay your head back on your soiled pillow
the one with the years of sweat and love
staining it deeper then the surface shows
maybe the words will find the road to your daydreams

from the crude
from the bullet riddled nightmares
and where the smoke was rising
last night

last night you really understood
but today during the light
it’s not as clear as it was
when you remembered it
before the light broke

it that was everything
into morning shards of daylight
that gave you that good old fashioned
reason to keep going
on

that good old fashioned reason to keep going on
