Auerbach's Cellar In Leipzig - Poem by Derek Kuborn

I'm changing this every time we kiss.
We picked our graves. Our families should have came.
I'm preaching words that you don't wanna hear.
But the bibles wrong. It is all in fear.
We live in fear.

We smoke our lungs till they turn black.
We piss ourselves till the nights come back.
We've realized that we called this home.
But when we walk through that door we are alone.

I've got some wine we will drink tonight.
We will drink until we cant count to nine.
We'll pass out in each others arms.
We dare to be great every time we depart.

The fragrance dropped from your body's home.
I'm telling you sweetheart, 'i don't wanna be alone.'
I've seen the future where we've had some kids.
And i worry that we might call it quits.

I've bet a million dimes on a thousand wives
That you'll be the one to bury my crimes.
Lets not visualize that we're out of time.
Lets just freeze the clock with the moonlight.

And now I've changed the clock about a hundred times.
And with every tick we're about to die.
But with our words we said our goodbyes.
And i kissed your lips like the sunrise might.
