drip after drip

life as a whole is swift instead of slow
there's never time to measure all the things
that happen to us there are many strings
that tie us up and will not let us go
a million facts that each one has to know
and we are summoned each time a bell rings
we could go faster i guess had we wings
there's never any reason things are so
what we discover is no simple fact
the universe is colder than a rock
beneath the ice we wait for a last shove
far beyond any sign of kindness or tact
there's room to challenge every horrid shock
but never enough time to show our love
