You break the bank with the people you forget to thank
And then the tide comes rushing in
The failing can never win
And I see sadness in eyes
That never shows anyone the cries
I see broken in the bottle
And jet planes at full throttle
And ether in the comb
And a longing for home
So eat the paper you want to write
Be the fire you want to fight
Drink the water you disdain
Kiss the dark and the pain
And in the butterfly suspect
You can be all that I reject
And when I do know this
Love is not within a kiss
But the barricades of sin
Lies can never win
Drunk can never eat
And heart will only defeat
But give up and ensue
You know what I will do
With the birds who love to draw
Hands in the air, and thaw
