Une Détente

I’ve lost my raison d’etre au courant
I set it all to flames
Just for fun
I didn’t know whom to blame
Nor whither to run
Tried to get away
But my last escape just shut

I’ve obviously lost all emotion
It’s never as good
Nothing ever works out
Quite as it should

But what have I about to complain?
You only pushed me down

And put me in my place
Down to the gutter
Bottom of the well
The sun’s turned off
The sky just fell

I try to tape it back up
To fill it up with grace
I try to find something pleasant
I haven’t already set to flames
