Circling the Drain

lyrics

there is a void a deeper black than anything
infinitely patient and silently waiting
ageless and endless and all-consuming
and the churning of the universe
is just a meal that it's digesting

we are nothing, when we pass.
like a jar of peanut butter scraped down to the glass.
when we expire, no spark remains
like a sinkfull of dishwater circling the drain.
you kill yourself to save yourself
from the possibility of pain
but you're a terminal case now
just circling the drain

your consciousness was gift -
but you made it into a cross to bear
you caught a glimpse of Love
and shrunk in fear
ashamed of your nakedness
ashamed to be laid bare
with this terror of stillness
of emptyness' point blank stare

we are nothing when we pass
like a lightbulb filament overloaded and snapped
when we expire, no spark remains
like a sinkfull of dishwater circling the drain.
you kill yourself to save yourself
from the possibility of pain
but you're a terminal case now
just circling the drain

it's not a matter of if
it's just a matter of when
'cause all we are
is dust in the bin
