my father was a locomotive
and though he didn't smoke his hands were made of steel
his chest was full of coal
i don't follow
in his tracks
strike a match to the ground
as the ashes pass
try my hardest not to remember
i wish this cigarette would last forever
if all you know
is what you are
and all i know is regret
how can i forget
how can i forget
try my hardest not to remember
i wish this cigarette would last forever
tarred up insides to pass the time a polluted mind
a polluted mind
the soft sting in my eyes
stench of a campfire
still somehow with a chimney mouth
though the fire burned out falling into a nicotine dream
all according to plan
now that i know regret
am i a man?
filtered thoughts
self prescribed
pack of smokes
to pass the time
filtered thoughts
wonder why
i never had
the chance to die
