Bouncing balls: who can predict where they land?
Rousing calls: who can predict where they branch?
Family tree: further from symmetry
Entropy: we can predict disorderly conduct

We are haystack needles with evolving empathy
We build tall casinos, gambling up our treasury
Unlike hives or anthills, teeming with telepathy,
we dig mines and landfills, adding to our entropy

Drop an egg; we know the path it will take
‘Til it breaks, we know the mess it will make:
on the floor, never to be restored
At the core, we know to grow
while forgetting wherefore

If you knew what I am about to say,
would you sooner try to take my breath astray?

The arrow of time is irreversible
The arrow of time is irresistible
The arrow of time is unmistakable
The arrow of time is inescapable

Mastered by Greg Reierson at Rare Form Mastering
