Know Better

Between yesterday and today

There’s a blackhole

From which I move in and out

Leaving behind good and productive skin

Coming out with old and tired habits

I should know better

Or I mean I should DO better

But when the mountain refuses to come to Mohammed

You know what they say

Be the best or die trying

But I’m a daydreamer

And I get lost contemplating this blackhole

While the world is going up in flames

I should remind you though

We have a balance at work here

Good can’t get too good

And evil can’t get too evil

Otherwise people lose sight

Of where the navel is

And you know what they say

About the one eyed in a world of blind people

Even though the blissful is invisible

And I empathy with those who don’t trust what they see

Because there’s this blackhole between yesterday and today

Where things keep failing in

To never come out

You would lose your heart, arm and legs and not notice

Just because we are all texting and driving

Forgetting to mind the gap

Life or death on a flip of a coin

Children with the power of gods

Too dazed and too high to die too young

But  collectors always come knocking

The balance of universes must be maintained

No yin without the yang

Mais tout se termine dans la merde

You still shouldn’t take my word for it

You should look with your own eyes

Touch with your skin

Collect your own specimen

Just remember that the outside is contaminated

The inside is holy and pure

Like the womb that welcomed Almighty God

But I digress

My point is keep your eyes open

Just not the ones in your skull
