this plummeting lift

see it gone before it’s here 
i’m all confused by it
like midnight toast
when you’re birthday pissed
did i imagine it

in bed early over slept
the morning's got me licked
in sinking boats
should we learn to swim
or learn of holes to fix

grab your boots pull up your socks
give your heals a kick
like vast plot holes
in a movie script
we stand and then we trip

if your tea is weak as piss
just put the bag back in
we plot a way
to see through the haze
as the descent begins

slowly from some tap it dripped
to runneth down the sink
we dig away
as we see the path
the ground begins to shift

for we must learn to dance
in this plummeting lift

talk it down the new frontier
and jump on into it
like rolling stones
at the height of things
a quick one leads to six

breathe it out forget the rest
we make and lose the list
ready to go
but there’s soon a twist
the bullets come so quick

new green shoot amongst the rocks
don't over water it
the weeks just roll
a year lost within
the white between the ink

if your tea is weak as piss
then put the bag back in
we plot a way
to see through the haze
as the descent begins

quickly from some tap we dripped
to runneth down the sink
we dig away
as we learn to laugh
the ground begins to shift

for we must learn to dance
in this plummeting lift
