We get so heavy, and we've gotta let it breathe
My night proves sleepless
I watch a live birth before I go to work
Is that you smiling?
I thought I knew what I was doing
'til I watched the teeth shoot through in every beam

We get so heavy, and we've gotta let it breathe
My loose end's leafless
The Doctor feels the spin just when he stands
That's why he's smiling
Then I'm reminded why he's crying
I join in; I'm completely fine with it

We get so heavy and we've gotta let it breathe
Preserve the image
of the last vibrant seconds I was clean
And I'm still smiling
Each notebook's in a drawer
Thousands of words do what these pictures should've done

Black,
Done up like a doll
Done up like the laminated cover
Of my rite-of-passage/social-death-knell
Hide in gravy-boat eyes
in flying-saucer midnight
Bounce, back and forth, up and down
Echo-chamber dread
You hollow out my head
I'm swallowed by my bed
You're resting on my shelf
You're kissing me goodnight
You're wishing me good morning
Now tell me,
do we look anything like a mirror?
