here's the plan
you cling to something
until it passes
and fades to nothing
a foetal position
safe & secure
until that thought comes
to kill you some more

but who will you call?
when this comes around
when all this calms down

there's a place a place
where fallen angels
are stoned & drunk
with featured artists
all day long
one by one they curse
whats done
as they suffer nostalgia

how could this be real

i stalled here for a while
to face a bird shaped cloud in the sky
she said this is not for real

fallen angel on a cold cold pillow

how could this be real
did i not understand you

someone told you
it would be better than it really is
than it really is
someone rushed you, you fought a good fight
but it's time to give in, time to give in

how could this be real
did i not understand you
