na.

an absence of trust found

simultaneous with a brand spankin’ new hatred in the

air

wrapped up in a sinister sense of pain

brought on by old heartache

led to the last drop of life

by a marching legion of bad memories

LEFT RIGHT LEFT RIGHT LEFT RIGHT

(with all the mean motion in the world &

all the time to get the fight right)

sharpening their razorblades

lighting more torches

loading more guns &

stocking up more bombs

KILLING ALL THE LOVE & POLLUTING ALL

THE AIR ABOVE

carrying a list of those to waste like kleenex

every name scratched out except yours

seems today is your lucky day

today is the way it all goes away &

melatonin isn’t gonna help

because these things make their ways into your

dreams &

there you’ll be strung up in somebody’s garage

like a deer being gutted out by

a serial killer who has just locked the door

rubbing her/his hands together like Mr. Smithers cuz’

he’s got all the time in the world to get it right---

melatonin ain’t gonna finish you out tonight.
