A child chased a fantasy
And barked his boyhood battle cries
Through a cemetery
Of cubicles and bloodshot eyes
A businessman rebuked the child
For whimsical behavior
Ironically, The Corporate Corpse
Was chastising it's savior.

The child choked
The Corporate Corpse
With words of waning ivelihood
The corpse then coughed up dormant dreams
That flourished in its childhood
Dreams that were ostracized
By notions of reality
Dreams too easily replaced
By routing practicality.

The Warrior Child rebuked the courpse
For drowning in a lie
And allowing social patterns
To leash it with a tie
The Child left The Corporate Corpse
To swallow all his words
The Corpse then yearned to live
And leave the corporate herds.

    General CommentAlright then, I shall pop the cherry on the Crumbling Arches lyrics discussion. I only recently started listening to this song, but once I finally listened to it all of the way through and read the lyrics, it became one of my favorite CA songs. I love the use of the phrase “Corporate corpse” to describe the man who has conformed to society’s standards and expectations. Essentially, although he appears successful, he is dead inside. Listening to this song always inspires me to put away my math homework and continue working on writing my novels again. The child in the song helps me remember and focus on my own goals, just like he helps the Corporate corpse remember his childhood ambition to sail the seas.
