There’s nothing like the fever
That stalking softly creeping
Climbing with fervor to feed the need

There’s nothing like distraction
That deepens the darkness of the greed
and leads to the choking
and expertly extinguishing of a life-dream
Left, lost and wilted to the floor

Ho hum so it goes
Me go my way
You go why
When all ways lead
Would you leave

Ho hum so it goes
You’re just another disbeliever
Caught up in the fever

More and more and so it goes...

There’s nothing like the expert
Expecting perfection but secretly gnaws inside
Cheeks, scrapes at heart

Empty and craving for the fill
That saps strength leaving tastebuds
Hollow-hope unfilled
Tongue untrusting and deflated
and aching for more

Ho hum...

How is the tried untrusted
the whispers left to the leaves

And how sacred is the flight
The Feeling of full morning mist
Fear spread like butter
Over mountain tree-tops
Like whispers on the leaves
