You were my friend, you were a love,
You were the one that fed my drive.
Five finger debt and dull cigarettes,
We owned the world.
Vagrant vessels, liars, cheats and dogs,
I've sifted through darkness for seven days strong.
If I would've known, I would've stapled my lungs,
Thumbed through Simone's catalogue and not sung along.

Concave critics queue to discuss,
What separates romance from lust?
Aging wisdom drags this lake,
He says, "I haven't found nothing yet,
But I will forge better bait."
To bathe, to feed, to shudder,
To tear off clothes, repeat, recover.
I refuse to forget,
I'll stay inside and feed regret.
You don't know what I have lost,
We're all the same, I have learnt that much.
I will obey and fade away.

Remember those long walks.
