Captain, captain
This ship has landed
Bite down on aluminum foil
For aspirin makes you frail
And red wine's dripping
Through pores of crystalline power
Speak softly now
Through the streams
Of audio tape

(I kept my eyes to the storm)
Your hemorrhage must hold together
(You muttered catch phrases)
Wedding rings clasped between your knees
(I drank them in with relief)
As retinas try to put colors together
(Now I'm drunk and needy)
Cause it's your pulse which shares calligraphy

Your pulse must move above 95,
Hoping only that you don't smell those fields of rye

Vocal chords creating beats which pleasure the ear drums of temper tantrums
As retinas grasped what happened last night, as impediments pave a river
Impediments pave
Impediments pave
Impediments pave
Impediments pave
You don't know my position
A river of lime
Hands in the gasoline
A river of lime
And now all we have is progress
A river of lime
And all you have is a scene
A river of lime

You're scared, I'm alive
You're scared, I'm alive
You're scared, I'm alive
You're scared, I'm alive
This note upon the basket case in which he gambled your wine
You're scared, I'm alive
You're scared, I'm alive
You're scared, I'm alive
You're scared, I'm alive
