Is it safe to say that you went away
When I know that you just left
The sentiment of a foregone friend
Though it pains us we must accept

The passing tide of a knot untied
Inspires questions of length of life
Euphemisms explain bad decisions
Why do we do what we do?

Just then you were gone
Like a star that’s been stared at too long
Or a picture on a napkin you drew
While we were waiting for our food

Then it all went straight out the door
Just like Kristina on the forest floor
A moment she’d not soon forget
It’s that important

Is it safe to say that you passed away
When I know that you just died
The tipped chair left beneath your lack of breath
You hung yourself in this park

The only silence besides, well, implied violence
Was your heart, was your heart, was your heart

Just then you were gone
Like a star that’s been stared at too long
Or a picture on a napkin you drew
While we were waiting for our food

Then it all went straight out the door
Just like Kristina on the forest floor
A moment she’d not soon forget
It’s that important
