Lyrics to "Common Threads"
The sediment dissolved,
the thread between us all.
A parting gift invisible hence incapable of
filling up the limitless bounds,
a token of appreciation
in every cubic foot of sea and sound.
A suite of ocean beasts
born in hot embrace of molten molds,
personified in polymer for budding hands to hold.
Then ritually shed, replaced to keep the pace,
the perspiration of generations'
treasures turned to waste.
a billions shreds,
manifest in every nook,
destined till the end.
Tangled in a web, every fuckin cent,
spent upon the endless stream of trinkets
we think is just common sense.
But entangled consequence, simultaneous,
dropped into the bottom and forgotten
for someone else to digest.
a billion shreds,
for our common friends.
