lyrics

My knees creak like the door in the spring
When the rain stops and the sun dries its hinge
My wounds leak like the old kitchen sink
And the linoleum floors fade from deep red to pink
My mind runs on its own like the clock
That my grandfather left and that still hasn’t stopped
This house sinks on its foundation plate
My body aches, this ain’t right for 28

Polarized, split right between the eyes
My arms spread wide and I divide

I pray I’ll remember the good parts
The books say to lead with a pure heart
But they’re non-instructional
It’s late, can’t this wait until morning?
You’re untamed and here without warning
And the gaps in the archive widen

Systemic loss
This will be glossed over while the voice in my head gets continually louder
Dysthymic plight
My intuition falters and every side-eyed glance is at my own fault here

Polarized, split right between the eyes
My arms spread wide and I divide
