Where It All Could Be Damaged


As scars and damage leave me blind-


No other crevasses in my brain

Know we are all laughing

__at what was once ours

A moment of silence

__to hear thee alarm

No words

__while the sirens' screaming


And when the drought is in your mind

You can't forget what could be found


You know you miss the tears



When the laughter arose

__like sprinkles

____of the times

Just hurt in all the way that the rail went

You see the care

Now you don't


We'll be all going to Hell!

If that's where you want us

To feel this burning!

As terror

Traps all the people

__to a lake of flaming honesty

That could not be honest

__when you were alive

I've been caring

__for no other soul

But now the dishes

__are hard to wash

Because that's where I thought of you

__the most


The sirens scream louder

__than my Kat meows

'Cause the money

__is ours

Not for a bag

Of some cans

When the sausage platter of breakfast

Becomes the marsh that is because of us

Lets nothing crawl away into the light


In the daybreak

The dawning

__of empty tomorrows
