about

A song for Hamlet. He had it rough.

lyrics

SEEMS
a song for Hamlet

wading through a nation
of bilge water writers
all their indignation thrown up on a screen

half that information digesting inside us

and be is the opposite of seems
seems is the opposite of be

You've become a player
without a definition
and much to your dismay you're not on the team

but there will come a day you're
gonna need your intuition

and be is the opposite of seems
seems is the opposite of be

It's not my long black coat or my black ink mood
or the trap or the kiss or the cold wedding food

I've become an action
that can't locate a function
and can't decide a fraction of all the stuff I dream

and it's time to join the faction
that says no to that distraction

and be is the opposite of seems
seems is the opposite of be
