Borderlines and Boundary Signs

from by Fiction



If these are end times…
it’s all right, ‘cause I’m by your side
but someone saw a sign…
that matched a line in a book of lies
did one mention a man
missing a hand? who’d appear next door
‘cause it’s so awful how…
I feel let down by our poor design
that’s from the mouth of god…
but full of rocks and muffled vowels
So there’ll be Borderlines and Boundary Signs
to divide us all

Walking through the park…
I found initials in a heart
carved into a bench…
and wondered if the heart’s still in it
now I realize I…
will one day die
and time will erase…
my face this place and this song
is that so wrong? I call it fair enough
our bones will fill the ground for miles down
eventually… but that’s eventually
