FRONTLINE EP 2017

lyrics

Amputee

I am a trilobite, scrambling on ancient ocean floors
Trailing a cloud of blood beckoning to eager carnivores
Dragging my heavy carapace up unfamiliar sandy shores
Blinking in blinding light, my vision blurred, unfocused

The beating sun fortifies defenses. Bones will mend. Blood will clot. Scars remind. I will adjust. I will

Fight! Survive! Fuck! Evolve!

Our tribulations are not packaged big and small
For what one of us stands to burden, another can’t lift at all
So when I say “I only lost an inch that day”
If you read between the lines I speak, you’ll see my disarray

Addiction! Depression! Prescriptions! Correction!

What happens in a blink cost hours under the knife
And the surgery undoes the work I’ve been building all my life 

At the bottom of the bottle
Whether alcohol or opiate
Fight! Survive! Fuck! Evolve!
Fight! Survive! Fuck! Evolve!

Brave a never-ending battle
When a bullet seems appropriate
Fight! Survive! Fuck! Evolve!
Fight! Survive! Fuck! Evolve!

I am a troglodyte, huddling around a dying flame
I am a divorceé, cowering embarrassed and ashamed
I am an amputee waking in recovery room beds
Blinking in blinding light, my vision blurred unfocused

So I drink myself under tables
And I celebrate with friends
Because I stared Death in her yellow eyes
And I swore this ain’t the end
Because I’ve tasted bitter failure
And I faced my greatest fear
So when I sing along to my favorite songs

I know “I’m still fucking here!”
