                     our genes are tadpoles                                   where his own life rests
                     in the endless sea                                       nor that there is no life

                     in which the codes of time sleep
                                                                              because it’s easier for us to not know
                                                                              that our life has died
                     with electronic coil
                     we are imprisoning life                                  we are zombies with illusion of God

                     but life dies once a month anyway                        in  the  middle  of  the  madness  of  zeros  and
                     all in blood and in stomach pain                         ones
                     and we put a nameless tombstone there

                                                                              wake up the time in us, oh God,
