Reinvent and Repeat

Is this a dance or a war
As we learn our steps in uniform
What is it we are fighting for
What mystery this future has in store

I'm caught in between
Spending years waiting for moments of beauty
Dead and alive
The investment of routine
I'm going somewhere in circles

Home in perpetual remaking
We don't breathe to settle
We're just passing time between reasons to survive

Every breath saving for life on layaway
Reinvent and repeat
Pastimes in waiting
If I'm only living in the future
What is the moment but just another form of suffocating

Days spent for overpriced days ahead
Short changing the here and now
The critic and the wise
The retrospect of relentless eyes

Do you seek to empower or shoot me down?
What is wrong and what is right
When I operate in a way that is different then you
Nevertheless I'm subject to the lender
As I am poured into the mold of your point of view

Procrastinated endeavors
There's something to be said for the way you care
Break my reckless behaviors
Learning to heed the voice of the one that's there

In the aftermath of abandon
And attachments of anxiety
I let go of the former
To sever the ties of dysfunction and dependency

Refine the vision
Remove the obstacle of my indecision
Making the most of now with high hopes for tomorrow
Forging joy in the face of every trial
Letting go of yesterday
Reaching for the end of sorrow...
