FIGHT SONG FOR THE ACADEMY This day of racket and everybody squirreling My idiot heart won’t stop beating the distance, no, never, and neither should yours   We all have ragged fingers Sometimes it’s too much winter, formulaic people crushing people dreaming smoldering cars   I have a desire I have a desire to build you up in lightning, make it glow In love with your fire, so weird in your wire Your head against my heart, won’t let it go It’s more than anthemic, this screaming romantic, the thorns and owls entangled empathetic with our arms out lumbering stars When no one’s watching out for each other our lungs like punctured weather on the pavement, spinning heartbreak into dumb wars

TURN TO STONE Tore my stars apart, so we were all messed up, with fearful dust and light and both our names in flight And with our wings almost lost, I went to the store and focused on the sky, but all I got were cries in the fire pit where people tossed me heaven-shit while the lightning chattered nervously through all of it and no one in the mist dared to remember us as we returned to stone Ripped my swan to blood It was beautiful, and someone caught the soul embedded in my fall I returned to drag you home, but you were only lonely and it rubbed off on my car I left you to you war in the water-pit where I knew you were dangerous in the open air and swirling auditorium you performed until trap door fell on both of us and turned us both to stone I could see, if you pressed me, going on like this for eons with a bear hug round an open heart and I could see if you pressed me, we might learn a better drunk kiss with our friends outside a liquor store and maybe if we hadn’t left us in the forest, we’d be found there in the thawing spring with roses and a terrible swift angel Got my anxious fog another rearview mirror and you’re always in its glare How can I prepare When the surging waters fall I think an ocean’s come to brush my stupid hair, but I’m alone who cares

F-ED UP All the wasted days of me are more than I can speak All the rabbits and all the sparks all the terrible terrible trees Burning up in California going dark without any water Ash surfs on an eagle’s wing Clap your fists and stomp your teeth So nobody else can see Watch the rowboat as it sinks and don’t forget to blink How the sun becomes a flood and forces us to dust Hatchet chops an angel’s wing Dear nowhere, I’m lidless and ghostly Spanish moss grows out of a hearse We’re so fucked, you can hear it and all the lights flick on and off and on And the burn on my arm becomes a scar Tear your hearts out at the root, and go to the wall where we sing all the guns that execute and make the ear worms ring New Year’s ever is over and done and now the winking starts Laser scalds an airplane’s wing Dear gumdrop, I’m witless and you’re a cake of sand I get to eat We’re so fucked, you can feel it and every dance we get is awfully pink And the death on the moth becomes a star

Today I’m movin’ slow but I want you to know my plan-- a fortune in the snow and coffee black as horses racing and you’re gorgeous Forget last winter’s curse I’ll never make it worse again Blood song in my ear buds, violets every morning, you’re never less than gorgeous I’m seeing you through syrup blue My eyes won’t shut for fear that you might vanish Please believe it dear I’ve never been this clear, I swear Let’s run away so we don’t vanish
