Schr​ö​dinger's me

from OK by Hey Karen



Oxford Dictionary definition of 'Schrödinger's cat':

[noun] A cat imagined as being enclosed in a box with a radioactive source and a poison that will be released when the source (unpredictably) emits radiation, the cat being considered (according to quantum mechanics) to be simultaneously both dead and alive until the box is opened and the cat observed.


it was so simple, as most stories are
it isn’t rocket science when it comes to faithful hearts
as always i was lighting up the fire
that would spread around and burn all my desires
but the glow inside made me feel so lost
i left myself somewhere in the dust
well nothing seems to fit in this box
except ticking clocks

we all are a dream of a drunken god
the particles keep crashing in
i will give in

you’d feel so stupid watching in reverse
all of the crazy shit that he made you rehearse
you practice all the moves and the steps
while he spoon-feeds you with a daily dose of meds
the counter ticks, atoms fall apart
forming structures resembling my broken heart
just take your index finger and your thumb
and form a gun

to absolve the world, eliminate yourself
keep crashing in
you will give in
we all are a scheme of a vengeful god
the particles are crashing in
i will give in

to absolve the world, eliminate yourself
just take your index finger and your thumb
and form a gun

i believe in our lord and savior jesus christ
but who will guide my heart when i let him guide my mind
we are slaves of dead gods that we create
the particles keep crashing in
