recorded with audacity! this is a first taste of an EP i'll be releasing (eventually) called Sad Songs for Happy People. enjoy! i love you!


And i'm sick of hanging out
with your racist friends
who can't get along without
alcohol or sexist bets on
who can be better in
out of mind
can you see me standing here
or am I a ghost in the background of
your bathroom mirror
with cocain dust all round your sink
and the stench of vomit pulls you too the brink of
sweet closure
o, sweet despair,
the air,
is so thick and warm from your breath
I can feel it on my arms
where the scars
from a million fallen stars
have left marks beneath
my retinae
I can't go through a single day
without seeing your stupid face
like a shining metal splinter in my heart

o, sweet despair,
what's in there?
Is it my sense of security?
Or maybe it's a repressed memory
of long ago before I slept
in winter clothes
and wept myself to sleep
