Upfront Trivial

Upfront Trivial

Shut the door behind you

Once you enter at the office of inner emigration

Let the theater of the absurd

Assert its grand existence

With a fall on the face of emptiness

Bringing down the colossal building of the beautiful and ugly

Elaborately and slowly

 

Should you regain your life

Should you choose to look back on it

We’ll discuss what makes up for it

Society, ambition, friendship, or love

And whether the road to salvation is upfront trivial

 

Once you grapple with the ladder

And you’ve climbed it

Throw it away

You’ll have made no real progress

Hear the judge say

The whole thing is a dead end

A figment of your imagination

Just like the sun

Won’t rise

Again tomorrow morning

You just think it will

I pretend it will as well

So have another cup of tea

 

Should you regain your life

Should you choose to look back on it

We’ll discuss what makes up for it

Society, ambition, friendship, or love

And whether the road to salvation is upfront trivial
