2.983 : 1/11/08 : Exhaustion

Whisper succumb to this exhaustion one more time
too much news too much economy
religion sex drugs and crime
they call it a society
I call it a God damn shame
if you’ll forgive my impiety
I’m well past halfway
on this so called axis
a downward slide seems as certain
as death and taxes
tomorrow seems as certain
as a tired cliché
but I’ll lay that rough brick
down again anyway
I just want to lie down
let it all wash over me
there’s a hell of a lot of Caesar
between God and me
And it seems like I’m just
going to have to pay
Every penny I pledged
every exhausted day
