i know how this works,
first i put on my dress and when the coffee's ready
i'm going downstairs with a smile, it's no big deal, really.
i'm a good liar most of the time,
i'm good at watching my back and saying everything's fine.
i'm a family person, my horoscope says
and i'm moody and selfish
and every time the phone rings i either
hope it's you or not for me.
i'm not here, really. i'm out fishing, washing my sins away.

call me when you get this, by then i won't remember anything i said
and i'll imagine how you look like at the other end,
how you let your beard grow to shape your jaw,
we're our own peace between the wars
and what we'd do and how we'd feel fine,
quoting adam and eve most of the time.

i'm right here in the middle of everything i was,
i slip into old habits, sometimes at night i hear the clicking of my claws on the floor
before my shadow slips out the front door
and the sun shines on me, i fit into the
smallest size, all bubbly and shiny and dolled up for paradise.
