    it's rock paper scissors as to whether
    i will get over you at all
    it's hand against hand and both hands are mine
    it's standing in a circular line
    which is not to say that i'm not also happy
    a happy meal with a surprise inside
    surprise surprise here's another bright light in your eyes
    exposing all the stuff you're not calculating enough to hide

    this melancholy that i carry makes me feel so grown up
    at my kitchen table doing shots of resignation
    i never thought i'd see the day when i would say i give up
    and break the stallions of my wildest expectations

    i do not want to know you this way
    surrounded by so much pain
    but how am i supposed to let go of you this way
    like a bird into the sky of my brain?

    i think i could accept all these dark colors
    as just part of some bigger color scheme
    if it wasn't for that drippy string quartet of sadness
    underscoring each smiling scene
    desire drags me right out of myself
    a gas-soaked rope tied to a piece of coal
    and i'm getting pretty good at looking at the bright side
    while the flames rip along the sand and swallow me whole
