Another Time in the Lost Decade

Okay. So I’m taking medication, and I’m supposed to be getting better
But my heart feels so much pain it’s like a sailboat in bad weather
Tossing port then starboard, trying hard to turn the wheel
But the mast has already broken, and the hulls about to keel
Over into the ocean where there’s no chance to grab a life boat
There’s your broken heart a sinking and you’ll grasp at anything that’ll float
Liken past memories to nostalgia; Christ I know they’re just the same
But I got so many distinctions that I can’t even find the same
Explanation for events that I have lived and I have taken
Part of, but to start with, there’s a chance that I could still save them
My hopes and aspirations–whatever left I can give them
