bright eyes [Dec. 21st, 2005|11:44 am]
the end of paralysis i was a statuette
now im drunk as hell on a piano bench
and when i press the keys it all gets reversed
the sound of loneliness makes me happier

i read the body count out of the paper
and now its written all over my face
no one ever plans to sleep out in the gutter
sometimes its just the most comfortable place

well i could have been a famous singer
if i had someone else's voice
but failure's always sounded better
lets fuck it up boys, make some noise

im glad you got away but im still stuck out here
my clothes are soaking wet from your brothers tears

and i fell asleep with you still talking to me
you said you werent afraid to die
i dont think that i ever loved you more
than when you turned away, when you slammed the door
when you stole the car and drove towards mexico
and you wrote bad checks just to fill your arm

ive grown tired of holding this pose
i feel more like a stranger each time i come home
so im making a deal with the devils of fame
saying "let me walk away please"

youll be free child once you have died
from the shackles of language and measurable time
and then we can trade places, play musical graves
tell them walk away walk away walk away

and im drinking the ink from my pen
and im balancing history books up on my head
and it all boils down to one quotable phrase
if you love something give it away
