carry me down, empty A with the yawn of a bus, the howl of a train passing out the window a system of lights in perpetual motion fading somewhere within i am light i am stillness and warmth somewhere within i am light vast is the night surrounding us now barreling down the tunnels with our hands trembling ours is a cold dusty abode filled with the cluttered remnants of old times somewhere within i am light i am stillness and warmth somewhere within i am light i sleep on a bed full of sand and it shifts with an hourglass sound and the motion sickness will abate i can still feel the rocking of waves as i wait for sleep to come carry me away from this trinket box hell we have made somewhere within i am light i am stillness and warmth somewhere within i am light

the christmas lights are blurring in the rain so warm today, but so dark at noon we carried my belongings in the dampness you took me home and carved out a space our neighborhood is quiet in the evening a contrast to the screaming headlines in spite of our distress we will continue establishing our finite fly lives cinched between our interlocking fingers is a plan hold it with a steady grasp, hold on as long as you can the cynic tells me walls are just illusions and nothing can protect our small lives the cynic says the end is fast approaching but these four walls feel so warm and safe cinched between our interlocking fingers is a plan hold it with a steady grasp, hold on as long as you can

imagine the blocks are pages we read as we go in my perfect world, the streetlights glow green for me i ride helmetless upon the breeze through the novel of the city streets reckless, lively and alone a car on my left approaching fills me with dread the rush of its wheels behind me speaks of the deep i ride helmetless upon the breeze through the novel of the city streets reckless, lively and alone

If I'm out of sorts, scattered-- Look to the shifting skies And my washing machine cycle life. Shadow over my shoulder, what's up? No matter bright or dark, you're with me in my hamster wheel. How I tire of pointlessly spinning in place... Morning strikes monochromatic Wilted, wasted, grey Day is never strong enough to burn the night away pretty cozy in bed with the void pretty cozy in bed with the void I knelt on a bed of yellow leaves Felt the rumbling subway neath me How exhausting, kvetch rinse repeat Coffee’s never enough Morning strikes monochromatic Wilted, wasted, grey Day is never strong enough to burn the night away pretty cozy in bed with the void pretty cozy in bed with the void

Perched on the precipice of the prospect of rent Flush with vertigo of looking ahead I can’t breathe my heart pounds with caffeine And this cannot last, this this hesitance this waiting to plunge My fear is a bottomless chasm in me It’s obscene Sublime and obscene It’s a bitter drink of disillusionment that experience brings So pour me a hit I welcome it warm and serene I will see as I never have seen For once in my life I have nothing to say Hatching a tentative plan to escape Blessed and breathless, I want this to last Wake me up slowly
