lyrics

I will die with the light in my eyes
On a central prairie highway in the sunrise
Refracted prisms through the fracturing windscreen
Kaleidoscopic as the world spins around me
But I’ll remember the sun on my face
And the way that the salt flats nearby made it taste
And in the low light and from upside down
That old frown is a smile now

But a picked wound will never heal
No better than a fatal laceration

But I don’t remember that feeling right now
This is a promise that things can improve
I’ve been dreaming of death as a happy ending
And laughing to spite that old wound

But a picked wound will never heal
No better than a fatal laceration

I will die on the Italian coast
All alone off a white sandy beach west of Rome
I’ll swim out until I can’t anymore
And I won’t fight as the waves drag my body below
I will die with a smile on my lips
At the knowledge I gave everything I could give
And as the dark waves flip me upside down
That weight in my chest will slip right out

I will die with the light in my eyes
