The Matchstick Serenade


the matchstick serenade

 ---------------------------------------------------------------

 

a derelict of chances passed;

the one who murdered all that was

and all that just might ever be

for nothing lasts absolutely

 

when all will end as surely as

the subtle flicker of a match

we might as well welcome the fade

impromptu everything that may

 

 

as i have always been saying

i just doubt anything will happen

but i'll sure as hell try to ignite something

 

a misery of sorts

like cigarettes in candy stores

you'd want bliss that's sweet and cheap

but it'll still burn into nothing

 

 

and nothing lasts absolutely

let’s just doubt anything will happen

 

so why not try to go out last?

 

 

take the hand of Temporary;

she might fake it quite thoroughly

strike the seconds and light anew

"eternally" was never true

 

when nothing lasts absolutely

you can't know what's going to happen

 

 

let's set the song on fire

 

 

flicker, flicker matchstick lover

this mind knows all the lies; make this heart into a liar

flicker, flicker matchstick lover

i want you now until the non-existent forever

flicker

 

 

as i have always been saying

why not doubt anything will happen?

 

when nothing lasts absolutely

let's be absolutely nothing
