Darken The Lights And Leave Me Here
Darken the lights and leave me here,
I need to soak up the atmosphere.
So let me wander in the dark
Into steel pipes and panel frames.
I’ll grow accustomed to it all
With a few fractures and toothaches.
Every door that I think I can see
Will be a new hole in your basement wall.
It would be easier to admit my mistakes,
But that would defeat the purpose of it all…
-plus you wouldn’t call the ambulance anyway.
Just keep poking and prodding at me.
All these holes will make me like a sponge
To soak up any shards of glass that may fly.
So the next time you set this house on fire
Just darken the lights and leave me here
So I can soak up this atmosphere.
