i cannot see
for fear
of keeping my eyes
open
may lead
to me seeing
nothing
i do not know

It’s getting better all the time

I used to get mad at my school (No I can’t complain)
The teachers who taught me weren’t cool (No I can’t complain)
You’re holding me down (Oh), turning me round (Oh)
Filling me up with your rules (Foolish rules)

I’ve got to admit it’s getting better (Better)
A little better all the time (It can’t get more worse)
I have to admit it’s getting better (Better)
It’s getting better since you’ve been mine

Me used to be angry young man
Me hiding me head in the sand
You gave me the word, I finally heard
I’m doing the best that I can

I’ve got to admit it’s getting better (Better)
A little better all the time (It can’t get more worse)
I have to admit it’s getting better (Better)
It’s getting better since you’ve been mine
Getting so much better all the time
It’s getting better all the time
Better, better, better
It’s getting better all the time
Better, better, better

I used to be cruel to my woman
I beat her and kept her apart from the things that she loved
Man I was mean but I’m changing my scene
And I’m doing the best that I can (Ooh)

I admit it’s getting better (Better)
A little better all the time (It can’t get more worse)
Yes I admit it’s getting better (Better)
It’s getting better since you’ve been mine
Getting so much better all the time
It’s getting better all the time
Better, better, better
It’s getting better all the time
Better, better, better
Getting so much better all the time

birds mate mid-flight
outside my window
and I cannot concentrate
on the words I should be writing

erroneous
in thinking
measures and degrees
of wrongness
are fathomable
