Off kilter sheep's clothing, grey fur peeks through
And you can't help but howl when you spot the full moon
You fabricate excuses to masticate and whine
And now you're saying you won't have dinner with my family tonight
Is it something I said

I'm grasping at the sky
Pulling down handfuls of dirt
You plead with widened eyes
Don't try to understand this hurt

They told me she's a lunatic don't trust a tooth in her mouth
But we still play forty-nine pick-up when things go south
It's hard to handle words and worse to manage time
So her lexicon agenda sort the days by rhyme
Our schedule

Monday Tuesday Wednesday
Mundane blues makes headaches
Thursday Friday Weekends
Burned awake by fried eggs tweakin on the mistakes and the missed days

Is it something I said

Like I'm sick and I need space
Like some quarantine timing
I ache like a cold brace
This is not a drill I am dying
Do you think about after
After we've been together
That you'll ever look back
And think it could have been better

I read to far into the letters
Until the ink just looked like broken feathers
Under a green light lost in time
I just wanted to fix you and not miss you in the mixed hues on our eyes

You're weeping gently on the floor
Tears me through these open doors
I felt so wasted I had mistaken
You to be my Daisy

Gunshot I won't watch you drown alone
I'll be the Gatsby to take you home
A moon rise lights this Sunset Drive
I'm alive but is that so crazy
