lyrics

Here,
at the end of a year,
as we meet to reflect back
on our doubtful career—
unclear—

it’s so blurred.
It’s like nothing occurred.
We’re inscribing a new page
With the same old words.
Meanwhile,

Cold resolutions are trails streaking the dawn
Old revolutions spin on and on.

Yes, it’s strange,
a disconcerting refrain,
but we’ve lived out the music
that made sense of the pain—
no shame.

Now here we stand,
with confetti in hand,
pledging drunken devotion
to some unformed plan.
Meanwhile,

Cold resolutions are trails streaking the dawn
Old revolutions spin on and on.

Raise a glass
to throwing dirt on the past,
and reaching out for the pale ring
just beyond our grasp.
Because

Cold resolutions are trails streaking the dawn
Old revolutions spin on and on.
