SONG OF THE DAY: Holiday (45s on 33)

exhausted and in need of an escape
not just a temporary break to convince one’s self
everything is not a lie
but a real escape
everything feels too much too heavy
too difficult to navigate
I guess holidays in true etymological sense
require belief in something spiritual
to honor on this imaginary day free from labor
there’s nothing real to believe in any more
just different brands of lies to choose from
to consume an identity
which consumes you
and leaves you exhausted
and in need
of escape
