I've been digging out my home
Been carving into stone
These dusty shelves once filled with such potential
Aw those tiny little hands
Once made such honest plans
Now they're throwing out the lost and nonessential

I'm a carving in a bench
Decorated in the trench
Every step I took was marked and consequential
Now my "brave" and "noble" holes
Ain't deep enough to close
Served my purpose
Now I'm worthless, nonessential

I was counting out my bricks
When the television hit
Those tired lines once rang so influential
All my metered praise and rank
Couldn't take it to the bank
Ain't it funny how it's all so nonessential
