80 proof love

 i was dreaming of conclusion when i heard the

crash of a hard drive mind in a yellow raincoat

his dreams got squared by a second grade

teacher who kicked a girl out of class for

having cool ideas she says that kids don’t live

the way they should radical plans to rule the world

i’d run away to canada but i hate the cold

eyes of his girlfriend as he sneaks a look in

my direction and in his mind i’m running my hands

across his thighs i could not help to crucify her in

a drunken state on a cross made of bedposts

let her die for my sins it plays a trick on my mind

i think it’s his knock but white trash climb in my bed

and whisper hell into my head if i could get away

i would believe in god since it would take a miracle

to yank me away from an 80 proof love

i chased the tequila sunrise with a three

month hangover and i was handcuffed to the

steering wheel with my own addictions

i saw him die that night with a head full of acid

and a stain on his shirt somehow we made it back

and i could swear the pavement was melting

as she drove past the motel for the seventh time

i wanted the gun that held me the night before

but it was too late for we were already dead

win harms
