The Neighbors called the cops again. The news is bad so just say when. Your toothless smile is a friendly way to shame the ones who won't go away. I don't like talking about it. I don't like talking at all. Just that once was more than enough. Sometimes it's best not to think. Those clowns will scrape at our nerves again. Let's try to learn how to live. I don't like talking about it. I don't like talking at all. Let's try mopping up the floor this time. A stick an old shirt and a length of twine. Is enough to clean our mess for now. Let's find the time to make it up somehow. The dirt is always there. We just move it around.

The key to the good life was always a fake You can stop in your tracks or die in the wake Or another blind fortune wasted on fame Can you look in my eyes and tell me your real name? Brass lamp is lit by the side of the bed We’re pretending to kiss but the walls are all red. If we were able to live in our hearts The current of blood would just pull us apart So long. The hills were upside down Autumn wore a crown. And all the world was smiling

Take me with you when you go We’ve got time, but then who knows I’m so proud and you’re so young You’ve got wisdom and I’ve got some Take me with you when you go We’ve got time, but then who knows. I’m so tired. You’re so tired too If we take turns, we might miss a beat or two But that’s alright The baby’s screaming, I guess we have to pay For all the laughter we had the other day But that’s alright Take me with you when you go. We’ve got time, but then who knows.

He entered the room With a look on his face That was not quite his own, That was not quite his face His skin was pulled tight, his eyes were aglow With the sad little knowledge, of where we all go He wound up all red and dead and orange and black He grabbed the first man, who had broken his stare Then he proposed that they both go there With nothing to do, and a need to appease The man with the stare agreed readily So they set off with a young native guide To show them the place they eventually died. He wound up all red and dead and orange and black

I am so relieved That the trouble was so well received I am overcome By the feeling we’ve already won A few years to go without losing our heads Let’s sleep through the night in a sensible bed The hollow hum of a too loose drum It turns out the day is over We wake with the sun but the moon has its pride They’re talking such nonsense we won’t pick a side All the worry and hurt all the money and dirt It turns out the day is over

This is not the house I built. This is not my home. These strangers used to hold regard for those that toiled alone. Look me in the eye and pray I keep this in my head Now whispers tell me one by one how blatantly they lie, that men were made for greatness and that eyes were meant for eyes Let the guard down, you fools are paranoid you’ll get what you deserve. Fear will shake a hostile heart, you’ll get what you deserve. Look me in the eye and pray I keep this in my head The rows are plowed, but they are paved so death will wash away On foot we walk to raise the graves where future seeds may lay.

I don’t need to be the judge, but you’re looking pretty skinny Your shadow’s been carved down to a line…. So breath, breath , breath like you know how to suffer Through your mouth, past your lips, blue and grey. Though the past is black and white, in the past it was full color It’s a lie that it was simple way back when. So don’t pretend, you could tell, tell, tell. None of us can see the future we have to Line up the memories that serve us well. It’s free, free, free. Words set down are always fiction They just die, on the page, belt them out It is just a fucking city, maybe the magic in the chaos was just neurotic kids with too much time. Have another, another, look, look, look At the bones that are my tether We’ll make something of it as we go. I don’t need to be the judge, but you’re looking pretty skinny Your shadow’s been carved down to a line…

You with your floodlight you looked in my grey eyes I saw you standing in not such a perfect light I see why you left now, I was wrapped up in boredom You were ready for anything and I don’t know what that means. Me and my friends we’re the same with our feet up We generate ways to stay satisfied I see why you left now, I was wrapped up in boredom You were ready for anything and I don’t know what that means. You fall around me wearing that sad look You shouldn’t bother wearing that sad look

My eye’s got a twitch, lack of sleep and clear sky. The sun’s gonna beat me, my skin’s gonna fry. Before the message grew, you were calling in quit before the message grew You never eat alone it’s the price of bad blood. Have to keep up with vision, notions of comfort and love. If we start crying now, it will never end if we start crying now I’m a pauper on paper. I’m a king in the ring. You’re a battered old truth, a featherless wing. I held an empty fist. You returned my stare. I held your empty fist. Trade all your memories for present flights of fame. Make friendly on paper, in the dirt it’s all the same. If we start crying now, it will never end if we start crying now.

To tell the truth I am clear. I eat hatred and fear, So you know I’ll be doing just fine. Tell the crows overhead that my skin is all shed. I’ll be doing just fine without you There’s a certain old path where the willows are bent, And they reached out their arms where you walked. They must have known then you were wrapped up in sin. I’ll be doing just fine without you
11.
Remember this face. Remember this face as the one That will take your place, When the morning breaks One last time. One last time. Remember this place. Remember this place. Every creaking board, The falling plaster, The dirty dishes, And some rusty words.
