this time down the cycle is not round
yet it is rather incomplete
and you're so neat
wearing your manufactured grief
on your back but not for you
just for the fact that
they may be right
but we are living proof that they are not right.

we will live backwards until someday
when everyone will squint their pretty eyes
and try and say that they were there
when we screamed bye without a care
the selfish shellfish
washed ashore tonight.

nothing seems real when you don't know how to feel.
