Skin and bones and a broken nose
What happened last night here?
Why do I sit now staring at wall, half-naked on a table of metal?
Oh what a tightrope joke, what a pretty prostitute in a saintly Italian film
She makes me want to lie down,
Makes me want to want to feel better
So you left the race track with your wedding ring tucked away between your thighs saying that "I want to be destroyed with furniture and the mice, destroyed in the fire, destroyed in the fire"
Considering how wrong it can all go, it is not important, nothing's wrong
The spaceship comes from inside
It's time to collect yourself
Why not collect yourself?
Why not forget?
Oh, Emily, is it time to go home?
Fare-thee-well to the crutch and to the broken bone
Touch, touch, touch
Meet me just outside of town at diner that never closes
Take this trash bag filled with half-finished song, and the hole in my sweater
And when in time it gets so that I cannot think,
Christ, cigarette, be still!
It's time to grow a beard and address myself in the mirror as though addressing a stranger
See, the stars above us are telling us nothing, no mystery, there's no order
The fish net broke above the water, let us let them escape, we should let them escape, let us let them escape
and as the hours go swimming to new terror and another fair weather friend disintegrates like all the others
Oh, what can I do? Oh, what can I say? How should I feel when I don't want to go home?
Emily, is it time now to go home?
Fare-thee-well to the crutch and to the broken bone.
