Summat from my head

Don’t look me in the eyes

Tell me it’s all just fine

Just taking a match to kindling and twine

You’re not sending smoke signals

You’re burning the whole forest

And the tinder blazes

(You can’t swipe left on actual human faces)

Telling me it’s all in my head

Breath ragged, voice dead

Not waving just drowning sorrows

At the bottom of a ship in a bottle

Submersion full throttle

Into self pity and dissolute apathy

Lies flow more freely

More freely than wine

As you tell me it’s all just fine
