hiding place

floods and city lights
rain like fingers on my window
fall asleep tonight
won’t be easy i know

build myself
a wooden boat
try to stay afloat

when my head’s a mess
can hardly get dressed
mind dissolves to grey
my walls fall away

give me
a lifeline to hold onto
give me
somewhere to belong to

 when i’m all alone
i turn into a ghost
but when my hope is laid to waste
you’ll find me in my hiding place

you’re a mess a parts
strung out like shrunken hearts
lay them on the ground
cast the broken ones out

give you
a lifeline to hold onto
give you
somewhere to belong to

when i’m all alone
i turn into a ghost
when my hope is laid to waste
you’ll find me in my hiding place

still me when the lights go
down in my head
hold me when the waves crash
over my bed

still me when the lights go
down in my head
hold me when the waves crash
over my bed
even when the wind blows
stay close
anchor me back down

and when the tide comes in
we’ll learn to swim

burn like stars

i had a dream last night that we
lit ourselves on fire
to feel the inbetween
of body and mind
but at the end among the ashes
cooled over time
found no evidence of soul
no spirit left behind

we burn like stars
glowing in the dark
touch us and we blow apart
self destruction as an art

try to preserve your face in pictures
paint you alive
the edges curl the pigment fades to
black and white
i’m in a jar i’m just a color
the color of your eyes
you pour me out and i
dissolve in the sunlight

we burn like stars
glowing in the dark
touch us and we blow apart
self destruction as an art

the air is warm but my hands are cold
my body’s young but i feel so old
the air is warm but my hands are cold
my body’s young but i feel so old

we burn like stars
glowing in the dark
touch us and we blow apart
self destruction as an art

we burn like stars
glowing in the dark
touch us and we blow apart
self destruction as an art

we burn like stars
glowing in the dark
we burn like stars
glowing in the dark
we burn like stars
glowing in the dark
we burn like stars
glowing in the dark
