separation

it was not easy, it was not slow
it could not be held back, it could not be dissuaded
it could not be weakened, it could not be stopped
it was fast, it was not easy

it could not be kept from killing the heart, it could not be weakened
it was not slow, it could not be defeated
as science cannot be defeated, as age cannot be defeated
it was hard and selfish, it was not easy

you came charging into our lives when we were unprepared
you came charging into our lives when we never wanted to be prepared
you dragged us through countries unthought of
you left pieces of us in a hundred places

it was fast, it could not be stopped
it was not easy, it was the making of me
