Interpol's "Leif Erikson" inspired this one. Plus I was feeling pretty lonely when I wrote this so yeah.

A lot of common themes in my poetry. Heh.

I want to feel flesh when the lights go out.
I want the goosebumps on your arms to be the braille I can follow.
I want to know what it's like to reciprocate that lovely nuance.

I don't have a soul to sell,
I don't have a soul to sell,
I don't have a soul to sell.

Help me practice my pantomime.
I'll mouth the words you want to hear,
But in my mind I'll crucify the metaphor of who I am and what I was.
This ship is sinking quick and there aren't enough lifeboats for anyone.

Hold on to your lover,
This drowning won't be quick.

This could be a good time.
