Getting high

Gold dust getting high
clouds fall from the sky
hit the ground
hard they crash
denting earth with a smash
everything it shakes and shatters
gold dust turns to a sweet powder
all the green that paints their eyes
hits them slowly before they cry

Golden gears

The golden gears they turn
keep the longing heard
tick and tock-ing fast
ears can hardly catch
sounds so over barring
the world is sometimes scary
the golden gears keep turning
the heart always still yearning

Closed eyes

I like the deep midnight
closing eyes till I cry
pending I can see the sky
as if I’m there tonight
don’t know much at all
thought it would all but fall
hoping since much younger days
wishing that I had my way
out in the open world
big dreams such little curls
everything is just so bright
wishing for that deep midnight


She said she loved me
right before she walked away
like I was ten feet in the grave
but thought I’d be okay
she said I meant the world to her
thought she was an honest girl
but the world meant very little
very little or so it would seem
she said she loved me
then walked away without me
holding onto lust abounding
all those thoughts consume so loudly
she wanted him this time so proudly
walked away this time without me
said she loved me but I doubt it
just another one she counted

Break my heart

You sing just like a siren
calling out to him
you want to see me broken
because he chose me instead
you sing about his past
like you might be his future
like once he wounds to kill me
he’ll invite you out to dinner
you sing to him so sweetly
remind him I’m not you
but when he calls me a keeper
you know you know the truth
like everything he did
he did it yes to you
you are not the keeping kind
no you’re the one to leave
sorry that it wasn’t you
he gave the wedding ring
you sing about my heartbreak
like I didn’t win
I’m the one who got him
too forget the sin he lived
you sing just like a siren
but he’s not gonna drown
I’m the keeping kind dear
you’re just the one to lay it down

Rather not

I’d rather not
no not really
I just don’t care
it’s just not interesting
I’d rather not
don’t say I did
let’s just be honest
I’m not interested
I’d rather not really give a damn
too much energy to lead the band
I’d rather not
no not really
I just don’t care
it’s really not interesting
you don’t matter
and now I see you never did
things just pass by
I don’t care disappear now
don’t reappear
I’d really rather not
I don’t really care
but I guess you must’ve forgot

Kill the pain

I’m sitting here just sipping whiskey
got the power to kill the pain
watching as he walks up closer
thinking he might get a taste
take him back to my place
ride him like I own his face
sitting just sipping whiskey
thinking about how I might bleed
he’s walking up and getting closer
I just drop down to my knees
got my mind all wet and wild
like the lipstick I pretend to steal
I wish I had a wild idea
but I finish my whiskey
and get the fuck out of here


I want to be tangled in her tongue
drunk off words and lungs
the air you can’t keep up
the sounds a lot too much
and everything is skin here
everything is flesh
the kind of floral pattern
that burns beneath the chest
that runs away with vision
keeps you tangled in the night
the tongue that keeps you healed
drunk off her lips insight
