blood on the tracks

there’s something about the way she smiled

without smiling at all

that let me know

there would be no way out

inexpensive taste

a rich hunger

we bleed

and there’s nothing we can do

there’s a song

you’ll write about it all

and for a minute you’ll think

everything has a reason

and a purpose

then the ends of your map

will fold

where you thought you were

will stay the same

but everything around you

will change places

the parallels

will become more than lines

more than distance

the legends

will mean something different

there is no way to reach the horizon

because of what it is

it is far away

if it was here

we would call it something else

i am the moon

chasing the fire of the sun

accross the night sky

always getting burnt

by the daylight
