  Like a Rub-on Oxymoron…

Oxymoron

 

 

 

(You are like a rub on oxymoron…)

If I turn to the left…
if I turn to the right…
if I turn any way, it will still be a fight
there are no winners…
there is nothing more to say…

If I tell you the truth…

it will still be a lie…
if I tell you that I love you, keep on wearing the disguise
you don’t allow me in your life…?
you will not open your eyes…

You say “I am on a mission from God…”

you could just be “yourself,” instead of something “you’re not”
there can be no love…when truth takes a holidaze…
an eternity of silence, after striking the gong…
and silence shatters the reed which no longer bends to the rays…
You say “I am on a mission from God…”
you could just be “yourself,” instead of something “you’re not”
there can be no love…when truth takes a holidaze…

If you tell me you are right…

if you tell me I am wrong…
if you tell me to “go fuck yourself,” there is no place we can run
you can hide in the foxhole…
but you cannot hide from the Son…

If you try to hide from yourself…

if your love is a smoking gun…
if you try to hide from the truth you see
if the fear really cuts…
you will bleed like a river…or heal the wound with love…

If I turn to the left…

if I turn to the right…
if I turn any way, it will still be a fight
there are no winners…
there is nothing more to say…
