A Hole Where Something Was

Finish school

Go to college

I thought that was always the plan

Publish a book

Meet a girl

Take her hand

Have two beautiful girls

See the seven wonders

Change the heart of man

I thought that was always the plan

but plans change when you fall asleep

your dreams became dreams

and the years become the unconquerable fiend

can’t you only chase what can be seen

window wipers dripping with semen

and you think the load’s been lessened

but you’ve just fallen off the wagon

and the desert sands stuff your mouth

picking the memories of youth out your teeth

they said that boy’s got some talent

and you believed

but talent only gets you to the field

will drives you down it

and love pushes you across the goal line

I’m standing in the rain

hoping, praying the divine hears my prayers

I’m stalling with a full engine

I’m breaking all the wrong records

and I’m turning each one off

Find a dream

Turn it into reality

Get discouraged by the outside

Maybe that was always the plan
