Indecision Crisis

Indecision Crisis
Like there’s a grid of spikes
Locked and hovering
Three inches from my body
On every side but down
Indecision Crisis
All I see is the spikes
I’d scream but I can barely move
Without slicing my face open
Any move and my torso is done
Indecision Crisis
Nothing I can do now
Can’t make sense of anything
I’m a mother giving birth
Alone on an ice floe, in a storm, (or in a cold forest, I can’t decide)
Indecision Crisis
Those of us who were never taught
To jump into danger knowing
We had safety to return to
We can’t decide
We can’t decide
We can’t decide
We can’t decide
We can’t decide
We can’t decide
Oh no.

Indecision Crisis
Every move I make
Is probably the wrong one
Someone I love might die
Indecision Crisis
I’m shivering on a ridge and can’t get down
It’s pathetic and I feel like a fool
Ending here like this
Indecision Crisis
Those of us who were never taught
To run into the world
Knowing we had safety to return to
We can’t decide
We can’t decide
We can’t decide
We can’t decide
Oh no.

Get me down from this ridge
Cold and windy ridge
Unlock this brutal cage
Iron spiked-in cage
But there’s no-one
There is no-one listening

Get me out of this hell
This fiery frozen hell
But there’s no-one
There’s no-one here but me
 
Remember the source of all things
Is within you
In kernels of dust
Spun by power
Let me step down
Let me unlock the cage
I will step down
Of my own volition
And come back to the valley
Where a gentle stream winds through
A meadow bursting with berries
And green grass
