Black and Gold


The fish swam out of the ocean
And grew legs and they started walking
And the apes climbed down from the trees
And grew tall and they started talking

And the stars fell out of the sky
And my tears rolled into the ocean
Now I'm looking for a reason why
You even set my world into motion

'Cause if you're not really here
Then the stars don't even matter
Now I'm filled to the top with fear
Because it's all just a bunch of matter
'cause if you're not really here
Then I don't want to be either
I wanna be next to you
Black and Gold
Black and Gold
Black and Gold


I look up into the grey sky
And see a thousand eyes staring back
And all around these golden beacons
I see nothing but black

I feel a way of something beyond them
I don't see what i can feel
If vision is the only validation
Then most of my life isn't real

'Cause if you're not really here
Then the stars don't even matter
Now I'm filled to the top with fear
Because it's all just a bunch of matter
'cause if you're not really here
Then I don't want to be either
I wanna be next to you
Black and Gold
Black and Gold
Black and Gold

(I hate it when people ruin what I think of as my lovely trains of thought with their own, but now I can see how easily it happens - please accept my apologies) ("apologies" has to rhyme with "bogies" for some reason)

HUH! well, did you just reset it? it looks differently aligned than it did a moment or two ago. . .

(now I'm humming "Golden Brown" for some reason, altho I was thinking of All Gold chocolates and how I don't like them as much as Black Magic, in fact I don't like them at all)

*sigh*

it was too much to expect, really - but you did get my hopes up

perhaps you're working for your living, or writing, or swimming, or not stuck inside?

whatever, I hope you've had a good day. . .
