Men Thru Time

Men thru time is what we are
We go real fast but don’t get far
We set our minds, we stay the course
Then look back to check the source

Lots of stuff and stuff forgotten
Some not ripe yet others rotten
Shadow goals and nothing gained
I left my cake right where it rained

We make monsters and angel hair pasta
We recite lies as though it were gospel
We wash mistakes then hung by clothespins
For all to see through the bushes

We’re men thru time and we wonder….
What the hell, is this really possible?
We’re men thru time and we abuse our power
We believe things cause we’re terrified of being afraid

Laying backward we stare in space
As the questions flow on the pillow case
Like hungry selfish needy things
They get no love or warmth or answers

Like it or not we’re men thru time
We’re interesting and we’re interested
We’re just so crazy it just might work
We’re man made men thru man made time
