Just a reminder about gravity--and the fix we're all in.

lyrics

HEAVIER AND HEAVIER

Telephone wire kite string
Ties me into birds
Conveyor belts of syntax
Break my glasses into words
You might sink the sun to shadows everyday
I might knock my lights out cold enough to say

Here's a note:

I’m not certain there’s a reason
The sky in all its knots is mostly faces
If you come at me, I might just follow
The street lights’ rockets are mostly hollow notes

Cutting brown paper eye holes
Worried just to see
Out on the horizon
Your crush staring back at me
We might tear the gloom to lightness everyday
I might kill the rhymes with kindness just to say

Someone wrote:

If you build it, they’ll try to destroy it
Nothing’s ever real until you’ve lost it
I’m not gonna pretend the damage
Head down on the desk cause I can’t manage THIS

When it’s foaming cluttered at the mouth
When it’s only show and that’s enough
When the sparks refuse to settle down
When the life in this is all I’ve found

I don’t need a world that gets me
I just need a world that needs me
You can have my number
It won’t really make a difference
When everyone you know shows up here
Out of blue and green and light beer
Everything is heavier
And I don’t need what’s heavier
