For a Change (The Way You Move and Pontificate)
Scott David James
Circa August 25, 2013
Don’t diss function
And fault decay
As though your ways had no play in the outcome and aftermath.
This day is its way because of choices you made.
You made your bed and want to lie instead.
It is what you are. And what you are isn’t well.
Well, what are we gonna do about it?
I can do nothing, it’s your choice.
Your voice that breaks the plane.
Your thoughts race and outpace your mouth, so you mumble and mutter, and pretend someone’s to blame cuz you’re in the gutter.
Sit back and listen for a change.
Trying to rearrange the world is okay if it’s objective value that you place on the table.
You’re breaking and I don’t know if I’m able to help.
Might have to put you on the shelf.
Hope and pray you’ll do okay
Until we meet again
And can be friends in sane fashion,
Without bashing the boundaries of another’s choice
As if they have no voice in the finding of their own fashions.
I can’t fathom what you’re going through.
I wish your madness bids adieux.
My love for you is pure and true.
Rooted in good things you do.
But right now the crazy’s tangled the spool
And you’re fishing with a fucked up tool.
I’m so sorry you hurt.
It hurts me to see.
But it’s just time to see that things ain’t like they used to be.
And it doesn’t mean a thing to me beyond the point you keep repeating the same ol’ things.
Before it’s too late,
Don’t you think you should evaluate the way you move and pontificate?
