conversation stuck repeat
hermes is no longer fleet
dragged into a dumb defeat
there is glass beneath my feet

daedal whorls identity maze
hit the glass and watch it craze
rizzared icarus wings, the daze
this is how it often plays

i say to you let me put it away
find something novel to say
hearts and feathers we need to weigh
long before the judgment day

break from these concrete patterns you have made
let another tune be played
the hackneyed phrase is overplayed
we shall not now nor ever be swayed
