Bout to see some vines growing into every cineplex
And villains climb to power from the ditches of the internet
That’s prolly why I throw a some sticky in the cigarette
And hit the armory to cop a blicky with the stimmy check
Living heck, give ‘em hell, this world is a Winterfell
I’m intercepting signal sent from limits of a different realm
Decoding the message is a bit unnerving
Every translation has been disconcerting
End is now. End of what? End is so subjective, bruh
Could it mean the worst is over and the best is yet to come
Maybe it means literally that this is the end of us
Either way, I’m tipping toes, shifting with antennas up
Anyone can get it, and it is dependent on whether
You’re healing, helping or hurting the communal endeavors
I’m sweating through the seconds, getting data to render
Pushing every button, pulling all the tabs and the levers (let’s go)

Against all odds, the machines and the gods, we gon probably find a way
It is what it is, and it ain’t what it’s not, that’s the mantra at my old age
It’s right on time, but the time don’t stop, so we plot and we grind and play
From the meadows and the moss to the big city blocks, I’ma rock til we find a way

Ain’t sure what happened, the clapping is all confusing
It’s bombs over benefits, tenements brought to ruins
I’m walking through the awful while others applaud the movement
And talk congruent to helping their fellow without the thought to prove it
I’m watching mutants, hobbets, wizards, and demigods
Imagining saving the world with scissors and dental floss
Pentecost, spirit with me, speaking to the hero in me
That resides in the same place that my fear is living
We making mini-moves, swooping like a school of tuna
Building up the scaffolding and filling in a few lacuna
Super duper normal Johnny Regular (regular)
In the here and now pulling people out the metaverse
Ready player? I was on that out of sight out of mind
Dipping toes in lake water hidden on the mountainside
I’m down to ride into the wild beneath sunset
As long as I come back ‘cause the mission isn’t done yet
