    but this life STAY concentrated with what-have-yous...


    I bet y'all are picking up the phone--
    still disconnected from the real world--
    blind to nature's tale-tale signs--
    of grief and despair--
    gasping for resurrection--
    stop strangling the only world i know--

    y'all upsetteing the balance--

    between all the thin lines of the world--
    i'm surprised that we are--
    still alive in the world--
    in a sense...
    but--
    I bet y'all picking up the phone
    on the first ring...

    still disconnected
    from real life.
