Life Is An Axiom


There’s a hole in the sky somewhere up there
That’s eating my share of the stars.
Someone spun a top way, way long ago
And it’s still spinning ‘coz no one told it to stop.

Its really not there, it’s all in your head.
There’s a soul deep within, one day it’ll fly away.
Change is the only constant, love is the last resort.
World peace, dark rum, machine guns and the rest.

I don’t really get theories.
I don’t understand philosophy.
I love, I lose.
I lose, heck, I love again.

Life’s the only axiom, theories are just theories.
If everything gets unraveled, where will we hide?
Black hole or supernova, you and I will perish.
Hell cares there’s water on Mars, I’m not leaving home!

How’ll I smile longer if neutrons are confused?
I’m a wave, you’re a particle.
You’ll ride me anyways.
Why’d I be excited ‘coz Einstein’s wrong?
I’m faster, I reverse yesterday.
My therapist will get paid anyways.

Life’s the only axiom, theories are just theories.
If everyone knew everything, how’d I prove I’m smarter?
So your religion’s cooler than mine, but I’m having more fun.
And when you leave to Mars, take your machine guns.

And while you’re there, pass me the rum.

Cynical .. Mature .. and very very Good. Now please excuse me while I go look up "entropia" and "axiom" in the dictionary. I was under the impression that Axiom was a Vim wannabe .. or is that Axion?

I loved the line :

And when you leave to Mars, take your machine guns.
And while you’re there, pass me the rum.


and .. this is something I can relate to:

So your religion’s cooler than mine, but I’m having more fun.

I don’t really get theories.
I don’t understand philosophy.

I lose, heck, I love again.
