So this is the new year and I have no resolutions for self assigned penance for problems with easy solutions

So this is the new year.

And i don't feel any different.

The clanking of crystal

Explosions off in the distance (in the distance).

 

So this is the new year

And I have no resolutions

For self assigned penance

For problems with easy solutions

 

So everybody put your best suit or dress on

Let's make believe that we are wealthy for just this once

Lighting firecrackers off on the front lawn

As thirty dialogues bleed into one

 

I wish the world was flat like the old days

Then i could travel just by folding a map

No more airplanes, or speedtrains, or freeways

There'd be no distance that can hold us back.
