Seeking Oblivion


You’d only hope to seek
Chewing tongue and cheek
In oblivion

The only thing that I
Shoulda done but never tried
Was lithium

And everything’s silent
But your movements are giant
I bet it’s you that fucked

You think that’s it’s so hot
Think it’s gossip but it’s not
Get over it

When you see a hand upon a face
And your bags your own and no-one’s on your case
It gets me down that’s it’s only temporary
When food and hope and hearts aren’t necessary
