The city is asleep
But I'm not far behind
& I guess that it's time to lull
My heart beats a tap dance
While my limbs calmly quake
With such anticipation

Mama, my stomach hurts
These painkillers are wearing off.
In the distance I can hear it now
This television's sign-off song
Laced with electric guitars

The poet understood this
Questioning the existence of the sea.
& I doubt there's a body of water
Big enough to quench our thirst

Show me how the robots dance
When we are celebrating this illusion
Show me how to love
& I'll show you how to beg
Together we could jump through hoops

& I will proudly spill my lungs
Onto the cancerous beach
I'm sending out smoke signals to you
My vehicle afloat
This pale torso complete
With two struggling oars

The poet understood this
Questioning the existence of the sea.
& I doubt there's a body of water
Big enough to quench our thirst

Show me how the robots dance
When we are celebrating this illusion
Show me how to love
& I'll show you how to beg
Together we could jump through hoops
