Everything Changes

Home smothers and chokes me;
Love drowns and provokes me.
Peace severs and pounds me;
Praise stalks up and cuts me.

Everything changes with every lie.

Live and you bawl;
Have faith and you fall.
Everything changes
With every sob.

Colors all avoid me;
Songs prod and annoy me.
Silence is a blessing
That is ever my curse.

Everything changes with every lie.

Live and you bawl;
Have faith and you fall.
Everything changes
With every sob.

False witness bears truth
When talking to me.
Can nobody hear—
Can nobody see
That my life is a life
No more alive than old history.

Everything changes with every fear.

Live and you bawl;
Have faith and you fall.
Everything changes
With every sob.

Leave home after dark;
Run away for the park.
Your tears have run out
Or you’re too strong to cry.

Everything changes with lie.

Everything changes,
And every change I die.
