Brooklyn. so much posturing. going back to the Fender Rhodes/Pianet. Excellent ideas arrived from developing this song with guitarist Wilson Novitski. last minute synths.


explode awake with stinging hope
starting small pointless fires
oxygen for arguments
so believable

replacement friends
casting calls
fill the streets with know it alls
selective and boring
bad at listening

playing in the dirt
making billions there
struggles and sequels

as if i every had a choice
as if i every made the time

believe in oxygen
brilliant thoughts won't fill my lungs
freedom enraptured
run until it hurts

such an invalid
simple as a meal
beyond the coatings
everyone displays

tonight extends a crescent haze
staring wounds open deep
praying like an animal
pulling at the trap

the air is thin it numbs the hands
circulate back for more
pieces interlocking

as if I ever had a choice
as if I ever made the time
