Here is to fear For keeping us alert. And here is to sleep For making understand. Here's to the crowning roots (placing us nowhere). Here's to the laughable wings (taking us nowhere). Here's to the eve Of the day which will never come. And here's to retreat To ease the pain. Here's to resistance (laughing at ourselves) Here's to defeat How dare you come so late? The cup is empty Shall be filled no more And all the thirsty Can now approach The antidote.
