Nihilism blues

You need the connection
Don’t turn it round
The world you dwell
Has a rickety ground.

You need the connection
I know you’re a seeker
In constant attempt
To get deeper and deeper.

Ropes people cling to
Aren’t safe from your knife
Make sure you won’t cut
All the ropes in your life.

Otherwise you would fall
Deeper and deeper
No ground underneath
You’re an unconscious leaper.

The knife of nihilism
Has cut the telephone line
You need the connection
To work it out fine.

So hear what I tell
Your start is good.

You’re a seeker
Seek somewhere else –
That’s what you should.
