Paint flies as souls die

And lovers find their mates

Dogs fight as the rooster crows

And food is put on plates.

Babies crawl and mice get trapped

Turtles win their races

Nooses loosen threads of hope

And mourners hide their faces.

Ships sink and cars hit trees

Virgins pop their cherries

A good man dies, a bad man thrives

Get divorced and get remarried.

Time is wasted love is lost

And sweet nothings enter ears

Curiosity kills conniving cats

And children face their fears.

Stars collide and open wide

And ca’pillars get their wings

Rain falls down and hides our tears

As the last one standing sings.

Guns go off and dead men bleed

The ticking bomb is set

Psycho-babble fills our minds

And we make ourselves forget.
