everything is beautiful
the concrete
you vestibule
i know how the story goes
first born
last unicorn
clicked my feet
heard the horns in form
or so the story goes

it's easy if you feel nothing
no one has to say a thing
still that siren sings
all my failure is just restraint
fear mixed with complacent strangers
and my body sings

once i had a dream i died
there were four leaves in the clouded sky all night
the city inside
you were standing in the front
your back to me
the blinds were up
my love
it felt real enough

i couldn't really feel nothing
no one really said a thing
still that siren sings
spin the yarn into a man
a new blank slate
fate's plan for strangers
when the whole world sings
