349 : 3/25/99 : Ready or Rot

1,259 : 0 ?

Ready or not here it comes
The future with the flashing lights and rolling drums
Like it or not it’s here to stay
Cause time won’t ever go back even just one day
Ready or Rot it’s all the same
Dragged by fortune by any other name
It smells of mystery and sweet misfortune
As each day dishes up its daily portion
Always talking of an abstract future
Never noticing the here and now
And a the center of it all a clumsy suture
binds the earthly spirit who knows how
Ready set go here we are again
Somebody stop me because I’m inclined to pull the pin
And throw my lot in with the doomswatch set
It seems to be the best odds I can get
