lyrics

You had me at goodbye!
I'm sorry I was crying,
but I figured I should try.
Heard rave reviews
of dying too,
but I don't wanna die!
That's a lie;
I been lying all the time.
Maybe I'm just unrequitable.
I guess this is a sign

I'm a crow.
A wingless carrier pigeon
in an inch or two of snow.
The flares impair your vision
and the winds and trumpets blow.
Is it so hard
to believe that this is so
hard? Is it me? It's been me so far,
but these days I never know.

Wave away the prying eyes.
Make mistakes, don't try to hide
your imperfections.
Maybe they'd internalize
the palimpsests they purify
if we were to let them.
But don't think for a second
you can't vocalize an objection
without being vilified.
This crummy reception –
can you repeat what you said
like you meant it,
dim the lights and chill the wine?
In the interest of killing time

for your whole life.
You never met a promise
that you couldn't amplify.
And if we're being honest,
well, the we's not you and I!
Witness: crime.
Remote film footage at 5.
In an incandescent interview,
you hint you have a mic

in your lapel – oh L.O.L.,
you cavalavalier!
And then you tell the audience
about the speaker in your ear.
It's just as well. It's common sense.
Nothing is as it appears:
no one loves you, no one cares,
death's no comfort, life's not fair.

So to preserve our certainty,
we sniff out perps and perjury
like thirsty bloodhounds.
My worthless circuitry
got burned by your first surge and we
completely shut down.
But you shut your mouth,
the last little bit of love wormed out
from the middle of your third eye.
Don't think too much. Dumb it down.
The ground is where the best crumbs are found.
Goodnight!
