the physics of life

which way do the balanced fall?
what's the chance it won't fall at all?
what kind of a task is it
provided the physics
to keep my chin up, and not fade away?

calculation after calculation
i'm losing my circulation
this isn't working
the answer is lurking
but i can't bring myself to just fucking read it

i've been over the math again
i know it works out in the end
but there is no way
that i'll finish today
so what is the point, why do i try?

so i fade away into negative area
the dark of the day becomes even scarier
i long for the night,
i long for the light,
in the mean time, survival will suffice
