Kicking down the flags
Watching all the states bleed
Coughing with the hags
Drags me through the old sleaze

Throw your cash away
A bird you built on backpay
And now it needs its song
Clueless fuck, the beak’s all wrong

I’m not calming down
I’m not ending up
I’m not walking out
I’m not of the crowd in the cloud

Dope and lightning strike the summer sky
It’s all so stupid I won’t even try
To make you see what’s underneath the surface
I’m not calming down

People scream their lungs into a gluey wad
Their thoughts oppose the mice inside of god
I think it’s tragic how the sailboat sinks
We’re drowning now

Fighting back the waves
Paves me like a driveway
And you’re the only swan
Shattered on the cold pink lawn
