Day 261 – Your Own Soundtrack

you need something, alright
but it’s not what you seem to think
awareness is a gift, I guess
when you’re so close to the brink

but you’ve known all this time
exactly how to pull it back
I’ve heard this song so many times
you love your own soundtrack

a memory, a fantasy
it doesn’t matter which one
they’re both dead in the past
but the funeral’s never done

the wine to aid your grieving
didn’t keep you from the brink
just from jumping, just from living
a rosary dropped in a drink

and you want a napkin to dry your eyes
because existence makes you cry
well I’d like a set of earplugs, please
the best that money can buy
