Eliza Battle

You must have felt it
You should have known it years ago
Before you woke up

Does waking ever lose worth?
Fire has overtaken
And the crew is already dead

Fears left unexamined
Are the flames licking
Likewise ignored passions
The precious cargo turned victim

Adaptation to stagnation
Damnation

Face the blaze
Or abandon ship
Icy waters offer escape

But you never learned to swim

You must have felt it
You should have known it years ago
