LIQUID VISION
BALL AND CHAIN

Struck me today
Hit me today in quite a different kind of way
I likened myself to a bubble bumping in to more than double trouble
Colliding till the bubble bursts
Exposing all that tender skin
When bouncing back and forth no longer functions
How shall I cope
Embrace the scope of all my sin

Laugh not in vain for it is plain
This life is more than just a superficial game
Our feelings lain out on the slab
Another soul you put down on your tab
This sacrificial lamb bleats not in vain
Get ready now
Steady now
Get ready steady now it’s your turn to be slain

The ball and chain
The ball and chain is swinging round again
And those like you I deemed to be my peers they dissipate
Diluted now merely no more than empty spheres
I count the years review the hollow laughter through these tears

The ball and chain
Ball and chain it smashes to and fro
Cleaving shattering illusion with each passing blow
Laying bare the true extent of just how much that I can count upon
Your sweeping airs shallow judgements I now see beyond

The ball and chain
The ball and chain is swinging round again
And those like you I deemed to be my peers they dissipate
Diluted now merely no more than empty spheres
I count the years review the hollow laughter through these tears

The ball and chain
Ball and chain it smashes to and fro
Cleaving shattering illusion with each passing blow
Laying bare the true extent of just how much that I can count upon
Your sweeping airs shallow judgements I now see beyond

The ball and chain
Ball and chain demolishing illusion with each passing blow
The merest hint the slightest sign
Of discrepancy you turn your tail and run
Making your excuses you put your tail between your legs you run
You run
