i keep it written on a locket and pinned into my jacket pocket, these silver shapes who spell your name loom around. i sing it to myself so i don't forget the sound. i took a chance on highway driving with the sadness packed into the side of me. the planted pills in the beautiful garden i grew, love, for you. oh, how i watered it with tears so blue. see, i knew a girl who never cried, so i painted my room the color of her eyes, like a fortress or a a blown-up portrait in blue, some strange womb or tearless tomb. it's easy now; just forget about it. i start again everyday without it. a new lease on life. i'd forget about it, but it's all around still. a new lease on life. i've forgotten; i promise, i promise. i can see through the window lightning and the shadow kids go dumpster diving all for nothing; we'll still go hungry tonight. the world outside is silver white. it's easy now; just forget about it. i start again every day without it. a new lease on life. i'd forget about it, but it's all around still. a new lease on life. i've forgotten. i've offed it, i promise. i promise. i promise.
