the revisionist lyrics – all else failed

the fat lady’s finishing. the returns are diminishing
the triumph, the tragedy: a breathing dichotomy
it all looks the same to me. revisionist history
this hindsight is a cataract. this valentine’s heart attack
the triumph, the tears. we’re showing our years in history
remember. recall. revise. rewrite all my mistakes, and hope everyone else forgets
my memory selective … and overprotective
it all looks the same now.
