I've been cruel and unkind and on purpose
Remorseful and insincere
Longing for the luxury of boredom
Weeping for the loss of control

Sitting with the sly sloganeering
Saving you a seat
When I met you, I felt on time
I felt organized

That year it stayed so warm I thought I'd never see snow

With a sharp click we're fluorescent
Walk twelve miles and then wake up
Work twelve hours and then wake up
Some days I don't make it

That year it stayed so cold
I thought I'd never see spring
Then it stayed so warm
I thought I'd never see snow

You can hear it next door
That low, lone rumble
You can hear it next door
Someone's laughing
Maybe crying
Maybe both

Constant reminder on all sides
These walls are not mine
Skin is cold sand
Breath is turpentine

That year it stayed so loud
Thought I'd never be found

I don't mind a little repetition
I don't mind the settling in
The creaking clanging steel of my friends
Shouting on the inside

Even-keeled forever
I thought I'd never

    My InterpretationI love this line alone:

    "Longing for the luxury of boredom"

    Not sure what that means, unless I am beyond it.
