Things Fall Apart


I think that Søren Kierkegaard was right
We worship a god hidden from our sight
I seek to live a good life, but I don't know where to start
So I remember that things fall apart

Our destiny is writ in stars and innards
Our lives are like a song by Lynyrd Skynyrd
When fate and will clash like a pound of lard and your heart
You can expect for things to fall apart

It's only seventy years we have got
Our lives are outlined for us like a plot
You only have one target, but you have your choice of darts
But whatever, things fall apart

Zimbabwe, Zaire, Malawi and Kenya
You fight existence all your life, and then ya
Often find you're at the place you're meant to from the start
And, as always, things fall apart

Remember that things fall apart
Remember that things fall apart
Remember that things often end in just the way they start,
Oh, remember, that things fall apart
