All those empty roads I rode along they don’t remember me now. They can’t recall my name or my number. My travel carved no groove. My mirrors reflected nothing back from the cabin I lived in. I sat through meaningless miles, across turnpikes and toll roads with a smile painted like a line across my face. Those bridges that I crossed can’t recall the tension of my travel. The rivers that I forged have started to unravel. Vacancy in perpetual motion came in sea to vacant sea. I am missing from the scene. My imprint is cast up to the waves to be ground down and disappear into the grains of a day that I wasted I’ve not tasted relief for so long being reborn from freedom-dancer to a lame lamb Sent to slaughter I'm not even fit for sacrifice to the altar of my Own capricious demands Those deserts that I crossed where the wild thymes bloom The nights that I survived ‘neath blood stained moon Vacancy in perpetual motion came in sea to vacant sea The rhythm of the drums has beaten me down They herald the coming with their empty sound There’s no shame at looking out over the empty ocean Crying there’s no end to the movement of the water, my sanity to save It’s a grave situation, no solution, no resolution, no shore to spot, not got the Constitution to withstand this wave Mind is empty there’s no song, No words to make my day less long Im vacancy in perpetual motion from sea to vacant sea I set out on this voyage through vacant seas hands hanging From the globe of the sun then dragged down by the rock That rolls and tumbles down the cliff of recluse Its no use all I have is this vapor trail to comfort And numb. Make me dumb shut my mouth take my breath And make it just hurt less. I’m hoping for calmer waters, slow release, just a tiny taste Of something sweet, some vacant release Oh vacancy in silent devotion bring me in sea to vacancy
A very powerful verse.
