written by joshua marcus


When the night comes
I want to be the one to hold you in the ear
Stop sharing stories through the interfering waves
Oh heads not headphones

As the light goes
And all the grippings of your nail marks return to shape
And all the hardness of your heart erodes and breaks off

The world will keep going growing and rotting without our interventions
I don’t think most people will pay us mind or even notice
The sides of your eyes have that certain night fatness
Rest till morning comes, let your life die in this day

As we wrinkle
And the times we hold most dear fade into fog
As my eye skin starts to seep o’er where I see
Come in close

Our teeth crumble
And our talents seldom wax and likely wane
Hold an outstretched arm and I will do the same
Hum the notes


And all that I have done someday will be erased by plants or man
And all the fighting and all the shakes, oh lay me down, lay down this heavy head.

In a lifeboat
What would you take if you were never to return?
What would you leave behind and rather gladly so
Would you take a rope?
