i'm calling out your name
instead of dialing your number
hoping i'll receive a better response,
because i'm feeling less and less
like something that's plausible
and more and more like something
that's been lost in the shuffle.
so i play the games
and take the risks.
hoping i'll be standing straight at the end of this.
but we both know this is just knocking me down
to where you are,
which is getting harder and harder
to sympathize with-
and fornicate with-
so, go lie beside her.
lie beside her.
don't remind her of me.
it'll make everything cleaner in your break..
i'll just be wandering around a bit...
picking up the broken pieces.
