Fall the Days ©2020 Stephen A Schuster

 

Fall the days like dominos
Who knows how long I’ve trembled in these clothes
Resembling who I am
An unassembled man
Too cozy for my comfort I suppose


Fall the days like mighty oaks
The joke’s on all us ordinary folks
Recording passing time
Rewarding every crime
A smokescreen token’s solitary hoax


Fall, fall, fall, fall the days
I’m so amazed, I’m so amazed
How quickly, quickly, quickly fall the days


Fall the days like broken glass
Compassion for aspersions that I’ve cast
Imperviously scarred
By curious disregard
For unembarrassed questions that I’ve asked


Fall, fall, fall, fall the days
I’m so amazed, I’m so amazed
How quickly, quickly, quickly fall the days


Fall the days one closing note
I wrote this lazy chorus and I quote
From forest to the pines
Restore us as we rise
Can’t sugarcoat this poison in my throat


Fall, fall, fall, fall the days
I’m so amazed, I’m so amazed
How quickly, quickly, quickly fall the days
