Of The Morrow—Absolution

Listen to Of The Morrow—Absolution by Richard Charles Stevens

Listen to Castles Instrumental by Halsey

Certain life skills simply cannot be taught
The finest education won’t supply these kind of tools
No trite qualification can come close to what is sourced
From some place some way deeper than curriculum can teach

As far as talents go
This one is seldom ever seen
Even then, there is no guarantee that we will ever comprehend how to extend our inner reach
Rule-of-thumb advises it’s the eyes that we believe
Meanwhile, we remain snowblind to all that lies beneath

Advised to follow each rule to the letter
Make the best of our tool-set
And call ourselves go-getters
Yet, for our very best drip-fed endeavors
We are tethered to unbendable design
Thereby resigned
That we can only lend consensus when they let us

Adhering to career paths fixed to quicken deconstruction
Arriving at a juncture where compunction punctures basic function
Lacking any gumption
As the train derails from tracks
Blaming nature for the interruption

None shalt dare proceed across the line
Until such time as we’re so uninspired
The dreams once patronized destabilize
Seem plagiarised
Obliged to break the cable ties and take a dive
To where all traces of creative vegetation dies
Space and time are relative
To each best effort hidden
Barely strength left to request permission
Meanwhile, any hope we show is to our own derision
Undermined of faith
By jaded eyes

Certain life skills simply cannot be taught
Feels high time to reiterate
To deviate from template
Make our own way to those end games
And luxuriate our thoughts
Tell tall tales of epic scale
To fortify our throne room
Take it farther still
Beneath the skin we’re in
All-in to pinpoint aches and pains to shift them into focus
Once we locate source
Well then, the time is nigh of course for taking notice
Find a voice to rejoice in the dense crowd of pollution
Steeped in once told sorrow
Of the morrow
Absolution

Certain life skills simply cannot be taught

Find a voice to rejoice in the dense crowd of pollution
Steeped in once told sorrow
Of the morrow
