Third Banjo Song (Damages)

from Darker Pasts / Brighter Futures by MNOP



i got poison ivy from the other night
when i spread my legs on a bed of vines
and now the scabs make all the constellations
i could never find

these damages make my lungs and my heart look healthy
and we're wishing on the brightest scar
and putting bandages on every star

i'm a little broke now
so give me a little time and space and let these leaves change
and i'll get out of town

anxiety strikes like sharks in shallow water
as a swimmer thought they'd never be unseen
but it's too late so make it clean

and lately
i've been thinking sex and drugs
are for insomniacs and criminals and freaks
conditioned to believe
that life's one big scary movie all you have to do
is not watch the screen

i'm a little drunk now
so give me a cigarette
and let me throw up in the bathroom
and i'll be good for another round

damning you to hell wouldn't elevate me
and after february i swore to never write
another song about my lover
just one other thing to burn
and if i'm wrong about you, then i guess it's my turn.
