Dead Ends

from by CANINES



I am looking in at
People that I call my friends

Just a sillhouette
With a cigarette
And no idea who I am

There were songs in these eyes
But now they’re gone
If only I had held the light in

Flashing teeth
They are smiling
So happy to burn through their time

And I don’t know when
But I lost the will to savor mine

Now they’re all
Stumbling to some other house
Though I’ve tried I can’t find any interest now

It takes
The guilt of just a small mistake
To puncture the joy
So its poisoned by doubt

I just wanted to face the expanse
But those dead ends have come to haunt me
I had tried to understand
How I should operate this body
And I was sure, but I was wrong
If only I had held the light in
The darkness would be gone
