Talk about your braces
talk about your books
but don't talk about me as a crook
with a smile so empty
he's pressing you loose
stealing from the kissing booth
you call him and angel
the love is mutated and running amok
dishes piled toilets stuck

a standing ovation will happen to late
the actor has suffered a timing mistake
and while they were clapping
instead of a bow
he shattered like pieces was running around

pessimism parade

talk about your basement
talk about the shows
but please leave my feelings alone
panicked apprehension pulling out the plug
beat yourself up like a thug
our jealous interventions never ended well
mocked emotions just don't sell
contaminated headspace probable and sure
relationships like racial slurs

a proper conclusion comes easy enough
but sly interruptions are keeping it rough
to mistake a giggle for menacing laughs
plowed through your vision poked holes in your raft

pessimism parade


from Sitting Shotgun to a Statue, released June 4, 2010
