So it Goes (Dissidents)

The city disappears
A little every day
One by one we’re broken
We pack up and move away

In language that resembles
Those dark and desperate years
You learn to keep opinions
Walled up behind your fears

In the long going away
We drink from house to house
To all the lives we’ve loved and lived
In the decades up to now

When we meet again
We’ll all be somewhere else
This one’s for the dying
Raise the next one to our health

So we drink to all our summers
When the wheat and flowers grow
We scatter like the ravens
So it goes and so it goes

Doctors, dancers, lawyers
Musicians, friends and foes
Beaten down reporters
Nobody wants to go

But the war goes on regardless
Whether not it has a name
This one’s for the living
Raise the next one to the shame

So we drink to all our winters
When the rivers froze
Thick enough for crossing
So it goes and so it goes

Before that, he was in a band called Paradise Vending. They weren't very popular either. He lives in KC and works as a dataviz developer and sometimes journalist. He also writes songs and hopes you like them. ... more
