Creatures of Habit

Indulgence becomes habit
Habit becomes lifestyle
Lifestyle becomes life
Dirty mind and clean hands
and the other way around
bring more trouble to the world
than creatures of other habits.

You know I hate when we’re fighting
I know you hate it too.
Sometimes it takes a tight grip on the rope
just to keep us alive

Habit becomes routine
Routine becomes rut
Rut becomes excuse for behavior unbecoming and unwittingly
playing into the dirty hands of dirty minds

Please don’t throw that word at me
I will try to listen with more skill
When we both talk, nobody hears,
nobody says a thing worth hearing

Silence becomes escape
Escape becomes habit
Habit becomes ritual
Ritual becomes religion

Excuses become explanations
Explanations become justifications
Justifications become hope
Hope becomes belief
Belief becomes memory
Memory becomes habit
