The Ordinary World

We are guided by our dreams
our nightmares
our heart is locked in a battle with our head
in the ordinary world

Colorless green ideas
move toward the light
nothing comes from nothing
two wrongs don't make a right

Erebus, love, and dark winged night
brought love, fertility and war

And Astarte was born
fully clothed
With cellphone

She got into her car
and drove away
into the ordinary world
to her ipod

And when she died
The sound of the siren said the ambulance was coming
her heart had stopped beating
but the meter was still running
