The Stableford

from by Missives



Have you ever stopped to look
Have you even stopped to think about
The things you do and say
And how they aren't the same

You move so swiftly
With a devious intent
But no one knows what you're doing
Until you've done it to them

This could be the future
But in my eyes
It looks more like a case of
The right place at the right time

It doesn't matter how hard you may drive
Sometimes you just can't stick the perfect lie
It doesn't matter how hard you may try
You won't stick that lie

Do you remember
The things you said to me
It wasn't so long ago
When you spoke with sincerity

I used to be believe it
There was a message without words
Now everything I hear
Just sounds so fucking absurd

Now tell me how does it feel now
To have to carry those doubts
It's such a heavy burden
Trying to figure it out

Like a race to the finish
Where nobody drew the line
And everybody's all done now
And the struggle is all mine
