call me up so you can call me out i've been called a lot i'm not about i say something & you reach out to touch me feels like metacarpal karaoke i'm too partial now to parse it out feel the dirty water parting now pull the thread but try to keep it low key you don't remember you wanted to be clean so i'll remember pack it up cuz you'll get patted down no more packing vans, just packing loud i miss charlie so i tuck my shirt in peaked with tawny now i'm calling it quits let me in if just to lay me out saying something when i'm turned around pay attention this is so important what was i trying to say to you, nick? i can't remember
should i invite you over for a meal so when you wanna go you go ahead tryna walk more softly on my heels how did this coffee get on my leg? you say you don’t get it but i know you do you say you didn’t notice but i know you better than that the station stop where your train pulls away rainwater collecting in a cup i state it for the record again today & i press record & then the tape gets stuck you say you don’t wanna go but i know you do you say you’ll let it go but i know you're better than that
did you notice me waving aimlessly again? i can't explain to you what i saw did you overhear my interiority? i thought i heard you singin my song then i'm wandering, passerine screaming at me "when will you get it going? get it together, jodi not everybody knows you like that"
on the sly, when it hurts you can offer whatever you're worth you'll decide when you’re old enough, sure & you'll always be under alert & they'll bring you in & no, i don’t wanna know now i don't, no what were you doing when they found you in a backslide? i don't know on your side, in your perch you can slide out from under alert when you wise up & sharpen your spur you decide how to soften the world when they bring you in now i dont wanna, no, now i don’t, no what were you doing when i found you in the back, sly? i don't know
feelin down i'm wringing it out cuz she's in town so i'll be coming back out with a new song and a clenched jaw i'll feel it out i'm coming back, now with a scratched paw but a scratchoff can you keep it down? i'm writing it out
these are the days when i cover my face totally whittled away it’s just a phase i’ll be on my way trembling out of the state did you expect me to ask you to stay? i wasn’t expecting visitors today you don’t believe i say what i mean “if this is it, then say it to me” so i repeat the image i dreamed, wondering if i’m still asleep did you expect me to temper my speech? if you weren’t expecting the words you received they’re still yours to keep
