Oh the ambulance went racing by
with a belly full of disappearing lives.
And I was that medic, lighting up chests.
If I know your heart’s beating, mine must be as well, right?

Vindicate the sirens, silencing my clout-
if I know no better then I know I’ll have no doubts
about our pardon from glacial progression,
an entire life walked in the wrong direction.
If I see the flames, I best start fucking coughing,
‘cause I refuse to burn without a mouth full of smoke.

And I smoked all the way back home.
Two feet timed their goodbyes with fading taillights.
Disarms were at my side.
The streets were cold and disappearing,
cowled collar facing gleaming, with every step receding flames.

If you’re okay, I’m fine, but if you’re lost, so am I.

All our stars rest with the doormen.

Oh, it’s gonna break you straight down to shivers,
stay cold ‘till it breaks you straight down to shame.
While the lines on your face grow deeper than rivers,
your impacted waves fade shallow and tame.
And no electrical current will remember your motives
or the places you’ve been or the weight that you pulled.
And it all boils down to the stars that destroy you,
the lights you’re defined by that you’ll endlessly turn to.
