This place is damp and ghostly
I am already gone
And the halls were lined with the disembodied
And dustly wings, which fell from flesh
Gasplessly

And I go where the trees go
And I walk from a higher education
For now and for hire

And it beats me, but I do not know
It beats me but I do not know
I do not know

Palaces and storm clouds
The rough, straggly sage
And the smoke
And the way it will all come together
In quietness and in time

And you laws of property
Oh, you free economy
And you unending afterthoughts
You could've told me before

Never get so attached to a poem
You forget truth that lacks lyricism
Never draw so close to the heat
That you forget that you must eat, oh...

    General Comment"And the halls were lined with the disembodied
    and dustly wings, which fell from flesh
    gasplessly"...

    Being an HSC student with a kazillion assessments to do makes me sometimes feel like my wings fell off and left me to drag my feet through the halls... I think that's where my grade is right now, so this is very apt. The Panopticon is probably a good description too... ;-)

    But against our whims we stay, and it's worth it. Sometimes the lyricism of life goes to greater heights only if you work for it.
