The Acrylic

lyrics

held open door
I count the assets
count the magnets, the stickers eight feet up
crushed by the risk
apologize to strangers and cough nervous in the dark

bad sign, he's doing chin-ups on the awning
and I could I help find his wallet?
I find anything else
Ace and crew laughing hard and watching for the shakes

and I imagine that this never happened but see myself doing exactly this

no alarm
talk hits as a moral failing
talk remember I got surgery, ate junk food anyway
talk years ago
how that missing girl's still missing
and it starts to snow

I feel my face on the frozen sidewalk
feel it give under my footstep
so I stop looking up to strangers
my stuck open mouth is hushed
I'm fine I see myself walking away

***
ace you owe an explanation
your marine friend showed up, now the staff's looking too
nothing by two in the morning
go home, it's the last time I cover for you
***
