lyrics

Night falls especially hard on some.
Government buildings blue into dusk.
Fake birds in real cages,
desire lines you can't trust.

What he can't see
through the cracked-glass tree in his eye
I myself as well walk by.
Palm a scoop from the fountain,
try to wake yourself up from this one.
I reach out
only to pull my coat together.
"It's been some weather..."
It's been some weather,
wouldn't you say?

Night falls especially hard on some.
Government buildings blue into dusk.
Fake birds in real cages,
desire lines you shouldn't trust.
A red lightbulb and a non-diegetic buzz
at the end of this tunnel, cuz.
Somebody cue the blue strings.
Let's let the shadows define the walls.

All lit up and empty
like a high school lobby at midnight,
all the purple, plastic chairs stacked inside.
"Call this number for a good time"

That's not what I meant to say.
Intention is falling away.
I put myself out to pasture.
Is anyone out here?
Can somebody answer?
Insidious clatter.

Then, like a hammer,
the dark.
