Oh fool of fools, surrender your misguided endeavor
You can't roam aimlessly to escape what's destiny
Following that thread first and this one never

Measure the liquid courage, empty out your cellar
That homemade recipe, of absolution drowned in self-pity
Oh fool of fools, surrender your misguided endeavor

Branded the celestial debtor, heart overwrought with terror
Staring blankly, as if meditating on forgotten identity
Following that thread first and this one never

Zero riches of pleasure, nor chests of treasure
Do breathlessly await your illogical elegy to ecstasy
Oh fool of fools, surrender your misguided endeavor

No effort put forth can balance that karmic ledger
While burdened with the knotty trappings of jealousy
Following that thread first and this one never

Expire untethered lest you're ordained as Fortune's beggar
Feigned fidelity deafens thine soul to Nirvana's melody
Oh fool of fools, surrender your misguided endeavor
Following that thread first and this one never
