You walked in this stone path
I'm not going to New England.
Like you didn't even really care.
You talked about the war and how it would never really end.
They'd just rename it to change it self.

And the sky blew up overheard
You said now it's time to go to...
But instead we stood up and we stared
This was a year of natural disaster
Flooding echoes (?)
No one has a reason to be scared.

Why do you look so scared?
We already have all the answers
Why do you run so fast when the past always runs faster?

The next month I went to your wake
You instructed them to make sure you sat up in your chair.
You were flanked by rows of candles
Flickering wildly on their mantles
We were all caught in your snare

They played all your favorite songs
My god it took so long.
In between the sun and (?)
On the way out I shook your hand
Looked in your eyes, I couldn't stand the thought that there was nothing there

Why did you look so scared?
You already had all the answers
Why did you run so far when the past always runs farther?
