I was searching for your summer secret Where sirens sound And the clouds go waterproof I was setting your smile in still frame And your blushing face on an endless loop Each night a change of scenery Each hour a brand new crowd Tip hat and sigh to a stranger Quick turn the daylight out I was tracing your every footstep Each second guess Reassessing your new plan I was drinking your eyes like perfume And your desert hips are shifting with the sand Each night a change of scenery Each hour a brand new crowd Tip hat and sigh to a stranger Deep breath and turn the daylight out I was searching for your summer secret In your labyrinth house Where the family doubts still bloom I was setting time to your red breath All sleepless nights and endless afternoon
I’m a broken every man Come see the crowd I’m blending in Here in the cathedral We’re all so awake You’ll be the only volunteer To measure every weapon here The wit or the weakness The will to give way A coffin or a bridal gown Go settle deep into the crowd You chat and you laugh but you forget all their names Go to the mirror and tease your hair Straighten your shoulders Try to look sober While all your relatives shake their heads You wish it was over Before it begins New ceremony every day The best part is the getaway Shed ties and the high heels Forget you were there Added to the memories The decorated histories You hear the applause And float up into the air And all of your favorite days roll by Like a series of movies Like clouds in the sky And all of the Saturdays fade from view Write it down or remember It’s the best you can do I’m a monastery man Come see the calm I’m buried in I’m gratefully broken but easy to shake I’m a secret everyman Come see the crowd I’m bleeding in We’re brazen and swollen and so worth the wait The poison or the antidote Question every word you wrote And every escape just by the teeth of your skin And every question they asked back then They haunt like the spirits, like whiskey or gin And all your favorite days roll by Like a series of dry dreams Like films in the sky You fade to black and then fade back in Is it all really over? Can this be the end? Can it really be over? Is this really the end?
Disaster When the wind blows Silken Every window Spider Augustus Richochet a blurry day Resistance Resolution Laughing Innuendo Spider and her prey Barricades giving way All the stars swirling All the walls are crumbling now And the silver circles pull you in Every last shadow Black ties and tempers fray And the faces fade in shades of blue Lady and prey delayed now you will sleep so soundly
Sidewalk scene Leaves and clean lives Pulled in and swallowed A gleam in green eyes Stuttering Graceful and shy Right from the first hello Need a place to hide Evergreen Sleeping outside Cracks in all angles A bloom in each glide Soot black and airborne Free in the night Counting every ember Cool in the circling sky Set to leave for all sorts of reasons Shift the keys, a poster for treason Count the seeds in each step the sea breathes On and on and on
