- Fighting Fish

Swimming in a snifter
Pretty as a picture
Don't get it twisted man, her bite is a bitch
You can name, you can keep her
But take care when you feed her
You never can take the fight out the fish
Chomping at the drill bit
Never one to still sit
You can est my metal with a magnet and some tin snips
Ink test all I see is canines and some wing tips
Pilot pen in pocket I'm riding instinct and Ink jets
Around here we don't like talk of big dreams
To stand out is a pride, a conceit
To aim high is to make waves to split seams
But that's not what it seems like to me
Cause I wanna try I wanna risk
And i don't wanna walk, rather swing and miss
I'm not above apologies but I don't ask permissions
Got a lot of imperfections but I don't count my ambition in them

Zeno's Arrow never hits the mark
Its always hanging there over its shadow
Safe from battle, waste of arch-
Er's time and trouble
Waste of effort, waste of parts
If you don't aim for the center its a waste of the art

I didn't come looking for love
I didn't come to pick a fight
I didn't come to wave or take pictures
Pander to some benefactor, ring on every broken finger
Won't extend my wings to be clipped
I know the culture here is to stay humble but shit
If we all go round bowed heads, button-lipped
If never none of us go for the belt who wins
My mother says I've loved too many men
But I took and left something in every single bed
Turns his head
But he night might rise up, investigate the grid
Gender, genre, guess I'm on one
Both the constructs
Women, children let me tell you, I've been both
And Its a myth we all swim for the life boats
I didn't come looking for love
I didn't come looking for a fight
I come here every night to work
And you can pick an ax up, man
Or you can step aside.

Self taught, self made, bet, self styled
Self came
We march in Con
Own tools
My joints hold steady
Chucks laced ready
I travel by kite, travel
I make my own luck now

Zeno's Arrow never hits the mark
It's always hanging with its own shadow in the dark
It's always hanging with its own shadow in the dark
