Chase Figures

from Zenith by Ultraklystron



spitting fire as it's turning light into dark
cause life is more slices than tournament arcs
segments where connections are tenuous
difficult to split daydreams from memories

Used to chase figures / Now I chase figures
Kill La Kill these bars / like I ate Trigger
Gotta grow or die / through these cold winters
Gotta hustle hard / be the sole winner

used to win raffles, now I'm winning hackathons
insights help find what to take action on
best company value singing all my praises
until I come around simply asking for my raises

suddenly the tune changes acting like strangers
so I return the favor and tell em see ya later
if my ambitions pass what they're dreaming after
I'll exit stage left migrate to greener pastures

cause the green's what I'm after, ichiban factor
every greens necessary to fight these bad actors
wish these things were actually debatable
but the cycle's endless and deeply insatiable

so i play the diagonal in absence of verticals
patient and merciful as I advance to terminals
don't want to derail in accident fiery
gotta the mind the details until I'm a retiree

coder looking for coda that's a semicolon
flooded like I'm NOLA or Tohoku with these big emotions
Looking for finales or exit doors from borin dreams
Never made it to the valley, stuck indoors like quarantine

sitting on the outside looking inward not upward
reflecting back on senpai with manga filled cupboards
adjacent lanes busy cringing with a snappy diss
past chasing clout, I just want one room of happiness

shonen jumps shojo to become seinen
or maybe they recognize that's not the way then
but nakayoshi smiles fade as cookies crumble
friendships fall apart over betrayals, stumbles

the drama never changes in anyway but the scale
so maybe staying outside it all let truths prevail
but frankly I cannot buy into that slow plan
cause I wanna solve the case, detective conan
