Like a Vampire in a Mirror
What will happen with man?
Please tell me what’s the plan?
A glass parking lot over the sand?
Glowing in the dark from here to Pakistan?
We seemed destined to fail
With a nature too sinful and frail
Human history one long bloody tale
Like a hunter following a blood trail,
If we’re a grain of sand in the universe
We’ve certainly perfected the hearse
Honey, your words don’t have to be so terse
Seems we have a holocaust to rehearse,
We’re on a hell bound train to non-existence
It seems violence is much too persistent
To logic and compassion, we’re too resistant
Here’s my 44 Mag, meet my assistant,
There’s something in the air, can you feel it?
I thought you and I would be a perfect fit
Just to survive requires true grit
Theater of the insane, have a chair and sit,
The dinosaurs ended from an asteroid
But it’s totally different being humanoid
Today it’s not unusual to be paranoid
Will the end result be a radioactive void?
There was a time I wanted you so near
Just like everything else in a world of fear
You disappeared like a vampire in a mirror
These days so few can be sincere,
When worlds collide, it’s not very pretty
The food shortages in a decaying city
Send your grievances to the committee
Be sure to bail when it comes down to the nitty gritty,
I’m here though sometimes I feel like I’m not
The quintessential lost astronaut
An unknown burial site on a wooded lot
The Grim Reaper mankind’s own mascot,
Going to push over now the target’s below
Signaled my squadron to tally ho
Got my bomb load ready to go
One more deadly seed to sow,
My leather jacket smells of aviation fuel
That flak and ordnance kicks like a mule
Just took some shrapnel feel like a fool
It was always a life and death’s duel,
Sorry baby hadn’t written a goodbye letter yet
It’ll only be the telegram that you get
I’m listed as Killed in Action but no regrets
I still remember the first time we met.
