Resistance Remain

from by The Gypsy West



these days I only taste blood I don't take care of myself like I should
I know as years pass I'll change so keep me young let me stay the same
I promise not to waste it with zombie smiles or idle hands
age may just be a number but time will never understand
the way it's supposed to be well that's just the way things are
or so they told me
I don't want to be disappeared I just want to plant some plants
put down my flags and say "hey! I live here!"
I try to outrun subscriptions, spheres pressed to connect me
to my superstitions and to all of my visions of the world brand wreck

if I resist will the pain insist? if I desist will the resistance remain?
unchanged unchained? like a carfire on the highway it feels as though
you're in a dream and the shifting of plates tectonic or fake
it shakes you awake as you rise from the top of the pot
as the boiling comes to a stop

I can't go on, I must go
(true love weights, waste, wait)

these days lack the majestic contained tame in a screen
it's sickening the lengths these boxes would go to
to grow then feed you your dreams
and to all you explorers when you find out how flat the world can be
don't throw your maps to the water
there's always new paths to seek
