​Path Of Folly

This song is by O'Brother and appears on the album Disillusion (2013).

So did you care to speak your mind
'Cause I'd be more than obliged
I've got a bone worth picking
We'll take it all in calculated strides
Little by little
Down the path of folly
Fueled by this overwhelming desire
I need to be needed
But I only need it when you're not being so needy

All my efforts lie
Lost in the line of time
All my efforts lie
Lost in the line of time

It's the existential paradox of life
That our survival relies on
Our temporary nature of design
And our failure to realize

You'll never get it but that doesn't mean you shouldn't try.

I wanted peace of mind
But progress thrives
On opposition
Caught in the paradox of life
Where living is dying
And I just want to live as if I were dying

Try as you will but you're never gonna be what you want
Always the insignificant mind of the brink of dissolve
Too little too late, always one step behind.

It's the existential paradox of life
That our survival relies on
Our temporary nature of design
And our failure to realize.

So take what you want at the expense of your demise.
