dead leaves and handkerchieves
and streetlights are all shut off to conserve energies
a dog barks as your lighter sparks
flick with your thumb no flame will come
so you just walk in the dark

backroads and alleyways
are the only place your comfortable, at least for today
your thoughts follow you closely behind
as you try to quicken your pace so you don't lose your mind
if only there was a place to go
where you could turn to mist and not exist
and no one would know

and all the houses
are electric paintings
with all the people and their warmth and all their play-things
just electric paintings

fuck blast the aftermath
you think to yourself and laugh as you pull out your flask
drink down in an empty field
all protected by the open space that keeps you concealed
from all of them doing all of that
all of those places easily findable on google maps
this is where you'd take your stand
but the wind is cold and you are old and hardly a man
you feel sick as the insects close in
and you welcome them to their new neighborhood of your skin


from DAMAGE​/​CONTROL, released March 18, 2015
