I'M Giving Up With You - Poem by Michael Fischer

(Guitars play together
In perfect harmony
Melting in the backdrop
Of a beautiful day)

Remember way back when
When we were so in love
When we used to care
About one another
When we had our friends
When we had a vision

(The door slams)

Those days are behind us

We're married
With a car
So fasten your seat belt
And loosen your pants belt
Because we'll be here awhile

Walk the plank of sawdust
And drown in your sorrows
Your friends are doing it
Why shouldn't you join them?

Drink in your density
And raise the sea levels
Flood the minds of the youth
Before they learn to swim
