In a town out East

Do you want to give everything you live for,
love for, to die for what you’re sure about?

It’s already been done
by the son of Man,

see
there’s nothing new
and
nothing you can do
that alters the truth
of who you are,
but
what you can become
is something far greater
than the sum.

I’m busy trying to work this out,
there’s something about its logic
that appeals to me.
