lyrics

Put the kids to bed
I need you to lie beside me
Remind me that I’m dead
The guest room
Two spools of thread
I hide the needles behind the bed
With my garter belt and my cigarettes
Put the little ones to sleep
I need you to tell me lies
To fill my empty uninspired mind


When we we’re young we said one day
Honey you and I, we’re gonna share a grave
I didn’t know it’d come so soon


The feeling in my belly of living with but not loving you
It keeps me longer at the corner store
Smiling out of necessity
Just showing teeth to keep the peace
Working out to induce sleep
So as to healthily avoid you


When we we’re young we said one day
Honey you and I, we’re gonna share a grave
I didn’t know it’d come so soon


Put the kids to bed
It’s about time I assume my role
Just hiding my black holes
Beneath blankets of love gone cold

Ron Gallo Nashville, Tennessee

Straddling the fence; between two (2) mindsets - 1. THE WORLD: is completely fucked and 2. THE UNIVERSE: is inside you. TRYING: to lean more towards the latter.
