Die Trying 04:12
I said, I keep you around to keep me honest around to keep me clean shining fluorescent You said, as long as you feel ok as long as you're getting out of bed each day as long as your'e doing your best But what if this is not my best I said, you hold this isthmus in your hands it's the only place I can land I am a prop airplane You said, as long as you're showing up on time as long as they believe that you're really smiling as long as you're doing your best But what if this is not my best, what if I could do better You said, I wanted just to hear your voice I said, I wanted just to feel you up against me see, baby, I had forgotten You said, the birds have been building nests around our porch & in the mornings they keep me up good god, I wish you were here and we lie on our backs and the roof starts to spin and it's all I can do to keep it inside and we lie on our backs and the roof starts to spin and it's all I can do not to start crying I said, it must be my foreign blood I mean, I'm Dutch, I think that they are known for bad behavior and I just get so low You said, as long as your eyes are wide you said, as long as your throat is open as long as you're doing your best But what if this is not my best Well I'm gonna die trying

could you make me something metal could you build it so I'm strong but please be sure that it is functional for when this shit starts going wrong I suppose it could be a pedestal for the weak rhythm of my heart please weld it better, write me love letters for when the doctors say you've gone but I can feel the phantom beating of your heartbeat when I'm asleep & will is not the same as follow-through it takes brute force & sometimes surgery heart beat faster heart beat faster make me stronger, I'm six feet under heart beat faster my fuse is itching to run out is there machinery you could bring see I was born into this broken mess not even miles seem to fix with every day a little death & I pray that trip is beautiful but maybe the gears that grind against your wheels could spark a kickstart to my chest but I can feel the phantom beating of your heartbeat when I'm asleep & will is not the same as follow-through it takes brute force & sometimes honesty and my defenses have been waning but i have promises to keep & tried is not the same as being true it takes brute force & sometimes surgery heart beat faster heart beat faster make me stronger, I'm six feet under heart beat faster oh, july you seem so far away your heat parades by threatening fallouts you're just a ghost through my walls your'e such a strange charade wrap your sucker punches up in scrap metal oh baby, make me blush now I will become lion hearted and stand up brave with arms outstretched & wave my keys in these electric storms til I have out-tempted this test it's just a picture just a song it's just a secret bound in chicken wire keep it, a keepsake for when I am gone the time of reckoning has come but I can feel the phantom beating of your heartbeat when I'm asleep & will is not the same as follow-through it takes brute force & sometimes honesty and my defenses have been waning but i have promises to keep & tried is not the same as being true it takes brute force & sometimes surgery heart beat faster heart beat faster make me stronger, I'm six feet under heart beat faster
