I'm counting stars amongst my friends and leaving town
My tongue is bent from silent stints in strangers' mouths
I couldn't make sophisticated neon sound
Just make it up, I do it, I'll prove it

Lady graces, I'm a fish and you're a minnow
Human traces, silhouetting through your window
Fame on the north side, a sycophantic infant fantasy
Incantations, anesthetized by sequenced sound

Asked and answered, I am Lara's Lunar lover
Asked and answered, I am looking for no other

My head overreacts
My bed expands, contracts
She sees herself in rorschachs
She hides in leaves of grass

I'm counting stars amongst my friends and letting go
My tongue is bent from lost consent to lose control
And you're free to trade for taller shade to stretch your soul
Just make it up, I do it, I blew it
