A Stitch In Time
I spent awhile trying to come up with lyrics for this that weren't just apocalyptic "we're all going to die" fatalism. But... that's what the song is about. It's what the song was always about.
I've become fatalistic about the fatalism of my song. I don't like it.
I need to go read something cheerful and stop thinking about climate change. Right after I get this damn report in. Bah.
Blessed be who seek to find
The play unseen, a stitch in time
But I say
The hour has grown too late
For a hope that wasted years
Delay has sealed our fate
And we’ll realize all fears
Still you study, line by line
Praying for a stitch in time
But you know
There’s no triumph we can reach
Just by playing out the game
Still once more into the breach
The quality of hope is strained
And we’re marching to an end
can’t win, can’t break even
Can’t get out of the game
But `til walls come down
Until the walls come down
Until there's no hope left to find
You’ll keep pushing that rock up the hill in your mind
Trying to force the clock to unwind
And crying out
For a stitch in time
