say say say with your voice to the air / i dip my hands in acetate with warm grenades and hurricanes / excited to bring life to this poor attempt at sinking in / elated with such excellence i chose my battles wise again / forgotten to the tides of May and swallowed by 10,000 pages read for comforting ideas instruction manual forbiddance
but please forgive my monstrous fears forgive my faults and deafened ears but please give me a second chance i’ll change in time i’ll change this time for good
carefully conditioning our feet to touch the ground / before we choke from tourniquets around your neck and frown / i know it’s better now that I’m not there to teach you all the warning signs / within your gold tooth grin there are new promises in town / for better yet in brand new tire marks i learn directions and trite remarks / this house has burned to ashes from the inside we have found / with raindrops drying faster than our blood will ever seem to clot / i feel the icicles they form around your teeth at night
from day to day i think of mountains / nodding vigorously to pass the time / with lips that press upon my eyes for comfort my smile is kept secret inside
and i have stuttered way too much while trying to pronounce this clamored row / in sight it’s better off this way in thought of high where scaffolds grow like dandelion daisies take my photograph in turn / from the first day of this month / and church bells ring for you and i with melodies i tried to extricate / but now, it’s better off this way
car lights flickering past the midnight tinkering / i close the closet door hoping you might hear my call / from time to time you waited i’ll wait for you forever if you try / to tell me what went wrong / and now there’s certain things i clarified i know i ask so much of certain sparks but i know you light the room incisively
without a doubt
just hold my body tightly through the night
and tell me what forever means to you
