communist Lecture

this is starting to sound like a communist lecture
it's starting to look like a forced Armageddon
hell calls hell - how could I forget it?
i'm beginning to think this string of events is in the wrong sequence

do you remember the time that I met you?
you were blue in the light - good god I was a disaster
the first time I saw you - I lost my balance
When I saw you last - I lost my balance

i won't let you be alone
i won't let you forget to take a bow for all the things you've done by now
i don't want to blink - nor stop to stare to fare thee well for everything

i think I've confused movement with action
i take a step forward but I swear I'm retracting
you tuned my head to your numbers station
your surrogate dreams are thinning my patience

looking around the humor is gallows
i'd jump right in if it wasn't so shallow
we eat our heads - more truth in our fiction
you're pulling me down, down, down and I'm drowning

i won't let you be alone
i won't let you forget to take a bow for all the things you've done by now
i give and you take - We hang ourselves with all the things we save to say

this is starting to sound like a communist lecture
it's starting to look like a forced Armageddon
hell calls hell - how could I forget it?
this is starting to sound like a communist lecture
