“I've got eyes in the back of my head”, she said, and then she turned her back, but she didn't see the blow that I would land. Under crumpled legs the fire in her eyes snuffed out, now we must return her body to the ground. And the words we said as we wrecked her bed were any port in a storm, and this ship has sailed with the mission failed but we were always bound for war like everybody else.

They should keep someone like me under lock and key. They should keep someone like me under lock. When morning breaks over still life the still life forms stand out, and this lack of breathing's louder than a shout. Now I'm running until my legs pull tight, and I've never cried so hard in my whole life.

And the songs we know flare up and explode like we were at a firing range, and this ship has sailed with the mission failed but we will never be the same and never will again. They should keep someone like me under lock and key. They should keep someone like me under lock. Oh.
