Stupid

Stupid,
What kind of frivolous past time
Is climbing a dumb intrigue
To peer down into a hole of fire
You know what a volcano is, don't you
It is where God keep his anger
It is where the earth's heart
Churns into fire
You see I do not mess with things
That have mess like that in them
We are too hung up on the ego
Wait until you stand before the altar
Stupid
A volcano is just hole in the ground
A hot hole for venting pressure
A hot rock
Like a frozen frame when the camera shut
And trap us
Motionless in the motion 
Of silly coming and going, going and coming
Around the rim of deep frustration.

    feeling a volcanic churning coming from the words as they progress to the end. My interpretation is that we make the time-old mistake of locking inside ourselves our desires and essentially our self expression and thus we spit fire at eachother. what was your impression when you wrote it L'nass? thx
