What Can I Say?

What Can I Say?

What can I say? I’m a lush
But I’m good at it
What can I say? It’s a rush
But I’m sure that it pays to be on time
Lately I don’t mind

What else can I say? I’m alone
But I’m good at it
To keep me in a way that I know
I’ve a bad habit of not saying goodbye
Truly I don’t mind

If I say what I need, would I say that I need you to save me?

(Save me.)

When would I break? What’s enough?
When the eyes have it?
What would it take? Make believe all kinds when I’m
Diminished in my mind
Delayed reaction times

If I say what I need, would I say that I need you to save me?
If I stay and I bleed to erase the sting of safety
To betray this disease would I break into what has made me?
Every single time
Almost… never mind

If I say what I need, would I say that I need you to save me?
If I stay and I bleed to erase the sting of safety
To betray this disease would I break into what has made me?
Plastic all the time
Friendly-fire blind
Delayed reaction time

Dissent

Dissent

As if it is as up to me as I can say
For me to be of it, of love as clay
If who to him was she to them
Where monsters are instead of men
Belittling our souls this very day

If who was down then what was up
With when as much as one can trust
As if we met who would we be without much need for empathy
But by the if we hoped for much dismay

As if it is as up to me as I can say

Static

Static

I, I try
I, I find
I, I try
I, I mind

I won’t let this go
I want you to know
I won’t let this go (near backflow)
I want you to know (down we go)

I, I try

Well I Never

Well I Never

Well I never

Sever, sever with me all our ties
Rip this stitch in time (rewind)
Sink in this doubt and we might fall
Rather that we tried (reprise)

Moving all tides
A thousand histories resign
We weaponize

Well I never

Clever, clever better break me from all sides
Bit by brick collide (retry)
Teething, bleeding, pleading, heaving with you by the bye
Make me compromise (remind)

Well I never

Moving all tides
A thousand histories resign
We weaponize

Choosing our sides
Breaking down in strides
We weaponize

Well I never saw you coming back again

Easy for you to say I won’t
Fractures are better left alone
Do you feel like letting go?

Well I never

Sever, sever with me all our ties
Wary that we might
We weaponize
