I swallowed my rings in my sleep
And dreamed of spitting out my teeth
While leaves danced on their branches to some strange time
Intrigue held hands with disgust
The world turned and I woke up
To one more city’s broken-hearted skyline
So save me a place in the line to the water
I found the bridge right on time but I was on the other side
You knew that I had been waiting forever
There was a song in my head and it was ruining my life
I saw you from the balcony
Sinking like a symphony
As cars were crashing in my memory two at a time
I held my breath to hear you speak
Your words made water of my knees
But still your voice was softer than the sunshine
You know you can laugh ‘cause your life is forever
There was a song in the sky
It was trying to tell you what to do
Fire your guns and beg forgiveness
Tell everyone the curse is lifted
On to new curses, on to new regrets
On to the next expanded fiction
On to the next bizarre affliction
And whichever curse has missed us as of yet
As flowers flung from wedding scenes
Filled up the floor beneath my feet
I started to believe your trifling timeline
And regret held hands
With the rust of several civilizations
The only option left for us was to rise.
