1.
I’m in a big hurry to get out of the city I’m packing and silent and hectic My neighbor said he was playing a show And I told him I’d be in attendance But I forgot and I slept a lot And I need to remain undetected Now I’m sitting in traffic, in a hurry To see a girl from back home Who I swear that I feel like I’ve known for a century But she lives six hours away And it’s been two weeks And every day we speak For an hour at least There’s no way My mind makes up these scenarios And crams the future full like a storage unit And when I get there it’s the same malaise I’m eating and sleeping and pacing And the cycle repeats and the fantasy seeps Through the cracks and the strain in inertia With a pit in my stomach, sitting in traffic The spontaneous magician of the mundane But she lives six hours away And it’s been two weeks And every day we speak For an hour at least There’s no way There’s no way There’s no way There’s no way There’s no way

Warm air on my neck Pairs awkwardly with The jacket I sewed In pockets to stow Symbols of my soul Adolescent glee Linger by the door Escape into the street The scorn of living I feel it giving I glow Like the part where the drums come in Stretched and framed on an evening’s sin When I was 16 I tried B and E Most outside the law That I’d ever gone It was beautiful Blazing through the night Blasting “Refugee” Windows open wide The scorn of trying I feel it dying I go To where I’m hiding The pure defiance I glow Like the part where the drums come in Stretched and framed Like the part where you see sirens In the opposite direction
