Track Name: I Won't Crawl Back
we loved like flash floods
soaked the oaks and flattened fields
but we splintered into rivers
and became to shallow to be called one

as soon as I opened the window
every drop of your presence exits
with the wind that was grabbed from my throat
there is no need to clear the air
I'll just fan you out like smoke

I know you use to stay here
back when you use to cry off rooftops
all that ever seemed to do was water down the blood
smaller divisions of the chapters
make the plot advance no faster
the race is the same distance
no matter how it's run

you are a magnet on a compass
to make me turn on words I wrote to me feel better
given up on all directions
I write suicide notes on the back of love letters

everyone expects pain to be a nail
to knock and knock
until it gets through
but pain is less polite
pain is a needle
it enters silently
and watches over you

and this is the only line you may flatter yourself upon
I wish you'd splattered yourself upon the B-line

femme fatale
my rationale
none of us are born dry
