Mercury in Retrograde

These are days
when you seem far away
you try to cut your way
through thick branches

You can’t find the clues
there’s too much fog and dust
you notice the path is gone

Your tongue makes you look like a lizard
you can talk to me, but I won’t understand you

And I see, these words disappear
as swallowed by the earth
in the blink of an eye that can’t,
it can’t see very clear
there’s too much fog and dust
this bridge is closed

I’ve lost communication with you
and isolation makes no sense

Staring into the void
floating into silence
slow down and fix what’s broken
reconsider
mercury in retrograde

If things get lost
you know they will be found
when you less expect it and
you already gave up

Staring into the void
floating into silence
slow down and fix what’s broken
reconsider
