The Life that is to Come

Now the wood has come
Come against my door
And I want more life fucker
I don’t know why I want this
Maybe what I want is the life that’s passed
The life that is to come:
An amoeba fighting for its day in the sun

I’ve known loyalty
From those that owe me life
I say that counts for nothing
Or something more than I can reverse
You were the last, the last and first
Oh baby tell me:
How’d it ever come undone like this?

I have dreams of you
And they’re all coming true
One by one these apparitions gain substance
As your transparency fades

Into the life, the life that is to come
And I won’t see it but some day you’ll reign
