drywall board

Things are not always what they seem
they might be bright and seem to gleam
but really things are not so bright
beneath it something is not right
sometimes there's a subtle clue
a tinted screen, a tainted hue
sometimes there's no clue at all
no suspect break in the wall
like mould behind a drywall board
you cannot see the rotting place
it won't be fixed until it shows
Then it has to be replaced
Things are not always as they seem
they seem to shimmer, shine and gleam
but what really is behind
the perfect shadow of the mind?

I'm missing a nut - loopy in the head
Can't find the screwdriver to put me back instead
I'm gonna fall apart and do a good job
Find the perfect way to become a super blob
I'm just a brick shy of a truly wacky load
Gonna find the perfect way to simply implode
Crash boom bang, she makes noise but doesn't run
Talk talk talk, she aint a lot of fun
See this? Big deal... forget about the fix
Chew it up and spit it out, throw it in the mix
Who cares? Go away. Whats the big deal?
Stop trying to find ways to heal heal heal.
It aint gonna happen, I'm a nut through and through
Go away and leave cuz I'm too messed up for you.

Round and round in circles - make a tight little ball
layer after layer of the same chorded stall
sometimes winding slower... almost breaking off
back to spinning crazily the moment I may scoff
tightly wrapped, hypnotizing, never to unwind
Bending ever hopelessly wrapping up my mind
Add another layer, its all I know to do
Focus ever harder drilling deeper through and through
A perfect binding strapped upon the ball that holds so tight
Perfect chorded strength to resist my tiny might
Wrap another strand around the ball, go round and round
Work it ever tighter until I hit the ground.
