Xxx Flux

All of my emotions are pouring out of me                                                                       

Lava from a volcano                                                                                                               

It's a sudden river of emotions                                                                                               

All of my emotions are pouring out of me                                                                                 

Blood from a wound                                                                       

It's a constant flow growing like a shadow                                                                       

I'm wakeful                                                                                                               

Falling through time in slow motion                                                                               

Held hostage by my emotions


The result is final, unmitigated

Like rain falling from the open sky

I can't break the curse

Drew attention to the crux

Down by the water, near the byway

I made a comedy of errors

The pain wouldn't stop like tinnitus

The suds gathered

I took my anger out on myself

The sun shined on in Hell

Many faces pondered

There was hundreds of them

Old faces, young faces, sad faces, happy faces

Many faces collided together

Created a blur

A strange feeling was in my bones

In front of all and sundry

I shrunk into myself and thought of death

Him, the unexpected arrival

Waiting in the wings


Waiting for the will-o'-the-wisp                                                                                             

Went west, went east                                                                                                         

Got a ride into the metropolis                                                                                     

Missed the gig                                                                                                                     

Got lost in the city lights                                                                                                     

Pulled out the pith of the fruit                                                                                         

Like I was unwrapping a birthday gift         

Noticed the difference                                                             

The flux, the flux of emotions                                                                                     

Flailing with joy like a palpitating heart.
