Nothing Rises To Meet Me lyrics

I had a thought just then
Nearly did me in
But I hummed and said “no”
Just to make it go
This is the crude discipline
That keeps me running
A honeycomb spun
Could I spin it any thinner?
 
Should I hold all my money
Or spend it all in one night
On the biggest woman
That I can find
 
Well, it doesn't seem to matter much
And worse still this tremendous touch
To conquer what I will
Return without a chill
And feeling open still
And wanting to be filled
 
Seek and ye shall find
You need more seeking time
And when I overcome
Nothing rises to meet me
 
Destroy everything
Examine the remains
Destroy everything
Then rebuild it again
This is the crude discipline
That keeps me running
