the walls are empty tonight
wading through cigarette smoke
drowning in faces
dressed up and watching

try to suck it down
a match to warm a tomb
cause laughter is cancer
cause cancer is laughter


lean against a stair
speak another line
then seal it with a smile
sulking in lipstick

take a trip from you
until the shapes dissolve
dropping and forget
‘til time is the aimless

cry into the headlight
lost in the back seat
ambition crawls backwards
on vinyl and sober

generations driving drunk for generations...
