a series of pleasant thoughts that distract one's attention from the present.
I used to believe that we were so close
but lately you’ve been flirting with distance
and I’m starting to get scared because
all of these long distance phone calls
are to places inside people
I’ve never heard of and I forgive you
for all of those road ways out of town
that you keep searching for
even though you treat anything
that leads you away from our home
as salvation - even dead ends
Why don’t you tell people the truth?
You felt safer holding road maps
than my hands
and a full tank of gas came filled
with an excuse for every gallon
You can’t be the oil leak
and the mechanic
you cannot tear my engine apart
while putting it back together
it’s driving me insane
lol, weed can’t even help me at this point of insomnia.
