getting faster

just outside my window,
a man was shot last night,
a witness called the cops,
her voice trembled with fright,
couple cruisers showed up,
sirens and flashing lights,
TV men dressed nice,
reported from the yellow line,

it's never going to be alright,
it's only getting faster,
time is slipping farther,
tensions are just too tight,

read the story in the paper,
on the bus the next day,
people always say,
"it never used to be that way,"
some pray to Jesus,
some buy guns,
some just move away,

where you going to go,
where it's going to be ok,
where you'll meet someone,
who doesn't struggle through the day,
baby, this is home,
you can go or stay,
you can dream up easy answers but believe me when I say,

it's never going to be alright,
it's only getting faster,
time is slipping farther,
tensions are just too tight,

it's only getting faster.

This is a song I was writing but fuck it, I just blogged the motherlacker.

I like these lyrics. I can hear a harmony in my head that they could run along with. And the imaginary vocalist shares an echo with Ian Curtis and Gord Downie.
