      name your price



I saw a face
buried hot and heavy in a pillow case
when I came awake
there was an empty space where a woman I knew was laid

I made the trade
my pride for blurred lines and apathy
but I know the game
you got two white pills, I got a bucket of thick black paint

thick black paint

so what does it take
to burn a hole straight through you and the wall you made
well I found a way
you got two white pills I got a bottle of anything


for every fever dream on a bathroom floor
There's a broken lock on a bathroom door

for every hour spent in a plastic mold
there's an hour left and an hour more

for every tired step in the autumn cold
there's a word that's kept in a closed up throat

for every half lid stare at bare white wall
there's the selfish fear that I need it all

well I don't tend to sleep that well when you're around
