even though nothing's predictable
mental or physical
you're an exception, the outcome is known
still no hesitation is visible
I'll keep a list till your tissue is sewn
and you're blissfully cloned

do you really not yet know
I define a nameless shape
I define a markless gauge
I define a pitchless tone

what use can you find for a man
who reached out a hand
but who's reaching the end of his useful lifespan?
you said, "we won't get very far,
I don't know what you are but I know what you aren't"

can you really not quite see
I define a pitchless tone
empty set of braces closed
I define a keyless code

when I was young enough to still believe
some elusive half-remembered dream
now I know too much to ever sleep

sleep easy
sleep easy
