In the waiting line


Now, they say protein
is good for you, I don’t like
that this one is not.

CA-125
It doesn’t sound too scary
but it is, to me

It’s inaccurate
and an inconclusive test
and it makes me sad

So I spend my time
keeping myself occupied
with my small projects

and the chances are
I will be none the wiser
at this time next week

but in case I am…
I just wanted to say that
I’ve had a nice life.

 

Wait in line, ’til your time
Ticking clock, everyone stop.
Everyone’s saying different things to me, different things to me
Everyone’s saying different things to me, different things to me
Do you believe in what you see?
There doesn’t seem to be anybody else who agrees with me…

Do you believe in what you see?
Motionless wheel, nothing is real.
Wasting my time, in the waiting line
Do you believe in what you see?
