lyrics

you tucked a fitness magazine
inside your winter coat
they told you ‘life’s lead by the body,
and love cuts at the throat’
but that’s all they wrote
you turned to face the catcall of code
that you never spoke of outside your home -

you might die alone

now everyone around is pleading,
‘it’s my turn to be saved!’
to some trumped up human garbage
the battered and broken remains of
the last time I spoke to the first one I loved
who had small words for me, she said,
‘life’s lead by the body, and that’s all you will ever be
to me’
and you’ll probably die alone

we might die alone
