about

my lone contribution to the short-lived but enjoyable "afterburner" collaboration with joey cape

lyrics

tangerine train-wreck gently crashes through my door
bouquet of damage spreading out across the floor
she's seen the glory of the coming of the end
i see the story of my slightly perfect friend
suspicions you rely on
the remnants you get by on
the worship you don't want from me
the parallel reality
the grief becoming viral
the prize-winning death spiral
of what could be safety
scenes you held onto slipping through your fingers now
the means you belong to can no longer show you how
inhaling barricades was all i ever knew
exhaling solitude, untangling with you
the pain a lasting token
of beauty always broken
pictures from a dreamed-up day
peel off and fall away
blaring empty spaces
new unfolding places
bleeding through with what could be
we tumble and cartwheel, lucky to collide
the wreckage will reveal capacity we hide
the pain a lasting token
of beauty always broken
pictures from a dreamed-up day
peel off and fall away
the latent underpinnings
assembling beginnings
bleeding through with what could be
