House of cards

More old

You like milk in your coffee,
And sugar in your tea,
A tarot deck to lead you
Everything foreseen
And the one thing you can’t
Stand
Is uncertainty.

But it’s here in the deck,
Baby
That your future’s kind of hazy
And until you make up your mind
You’ll never know just what
You’ll find
You’re only building yourself
A little house of cards.

You cosy up to indecision
You won’t commit an indiscretion,
You interpret every motion
Everything a dream
And you won’t close
the door
In case you never find the key

The key

The key’s the runes and
The tarot
The readings, the sparrow
The entrails, the oracles,
The psychics and miracles,
Angels and demons
Symbols and seasons –
The future, the future,
The future, the future
When and what and how and where and why

Why?
Why would you
Want a lock and key
When what makes it
All fall
Is your need for certainty?

It’s all here in the deck,
Baby
That your future’s kind of hazy
And until you make up your mind
You’ll never know just what
You’ll find
You’re only building yourself
A little house of cards
