    you're taking up lots of space
    your shit is everywhere
    your breath is all up in my face
    your hands are swarming in the air
    you're the first one out the car and then
    you're the loudest one in the bar
    tell me, is there something wrong, girlfriend?
    what's with this new version of who you are?

    so she lifts her chin and squints at me
    to assess what i think i know
    she says, my heart has some dangerous neighborhoods
    so beware where you try to go
    they say that the truth will set you free
    but then so will a lie
    it depends if you're trying to get to the promised land
    or you're just trying to get by

    what is a camera but a box of light?
    what is a guitar but a box of sound?
    you think i don't understand
    but i think i might
    what it is to harness the emptiness
    and just ride it around
    and maybe your chest is an empty shell
    with ribs of spiraling coral
    where a perfect pearl of sadness resides
    but if you ever need an ear
    i could just come and press it there
    listen to the sound of the ocean inside
