curtain tricks
windows pause for the sunset to strip
appealing with our eyes, fired up watching it
a reasonable time to embrace and admit

reliable, i’m not what you expect
infallible and constant emotional threat
you’re always on the move to a better mess
i’m always on the move for a steady head

sirens call
darkness wails till it dampens the roar
my ears are ringing like a violent war
bullets are aimed at my feverous heart

you’ll watch me choke as teen years scupper my shots
presents given, wrapped in superfluous knots
i’m bound by a string of unfortunate luck
dates roll by, I think this calendar’s stuck

i know that i am blessed with some nasty fits
i know that you can hardly make sense out of it
i know the fear has taken an icy grip
i know that i have made an incredible slip

reliable, I’m not what you expect
infallible / yes / constant emotional threat
i’m always trying hard for a steady head
you’re ready on the move to a better mess
