Without street lights at night
you might be walking along the sidewalk
crushing a dead bird's bones with your bare feet

thinking
someone's spilled a bag of freedom
we stayed up all night
with an empty box of cheerios

Next Atlanta flight
with glow-in-the-dark legos

Atlanta smells like exhaust
Atlanta smells like rotting possums
Adam found a dead butterfly fully intact
and it put it on my keyboard at soundcheck

    My OpinionI laugh every time I hear the last lines:

    "Atlanta smells like exhaust
    Atlanta smells like rotting possums
    Adam found a dead butterfly fully intact
    and it put it on my keyboard at soundcheck"

    Not a big fan of the instruments though. kinda all over the place...
