835 : 7/23/00 : Waste

Wasted youth wasted days
everybody’s talkin’
but nobody says
what’s going’ on
outside the walls
in the Waste Land
Meanwhile at the right
or left hand
the decree laid down
was the cross and the crown
to raise up our wasted youth
The word unheard was the final truth
positive proof and
the end of questions
the curtain was uncertain
we were open to suggestions
ends of days
the waste of life
We know the vorpal instrument
Occam’s blade Damocles’ knife
