The Thing You Think You're In (spoken and sung)

(spoken & sung)
Today go do the things you say
and say the things you do.
Try to find out in your usual way
if anything new is true
about the thing you think you’re in,
or if you’ve made the cut.
If not: at least you’ve blundered in
to find at last you’ve shut
the door on ambiguity
and found one truth intact:
agleam with sheer congruity –
your empty head’s a fact.
Keep your final act at bay,
blithering toward the abyss.
Get on your knees midday to pray,
slithering forward like this.
