Arrhythmia pt. 2

Rush, rush,
It's all a rush!
I can't take oxygen in liquid form
and the air in my veins
Is causing the swelling pains
Inflating my brain and making me lightheaded.
In a mess of blinkers and ran lights,
I'm living life by thirty-second's
DONE. Yeah, there you go!
Sum your life into a series of yes' and no's
Die and take your receipt to Peter's gates.
Wait in the cue,
A sales representative will be with you
And there on your receipt are digits lined in gold
Variations of numbers in a binary code:
Zero, one, zero, zero, one, zero,
One second,
I need some time to think.
