Ashes Will Never Sing Songs of Fire

from by two weeks notice



[tribe one]
i was already dead when she killed me
heart as heavy as the lead that filled me
she always fought dirty not afraid to get filthy
so while she committed crimes at will i was the one that pled guilty

every so often i would watch her clean the gun
and load it like the secret i keep beneath my tongue
free from the things we believed when we were young
and afraid of the demon that she’d become

she’d count a thousand ways how my life improved
no doubts that it sounded like the truth
dragging me down how could i refuse
with her standing on my neck wearing mountain climbing shoes

it isn’t that simple to explain
how these living conditions made me indifferent to the pain
so when it came it was with a whimper and a bang
i can’t think of a more intimate exchange

ashes will never sing songs of fire

it was a cold wednesday snow and ash on the ground
broken window, insect whisper sound
it says someone’s home, implies their alone
cold wind pushes, curtains shift from the blow
whole house freeze. whole house creak
whole house silent except the sound of screams.
two kids in their room, clutch whatever they can find
says he comes in here, we gonna shatter his mind
and i guess that’s fine guess it’s time
to own that moment embrace it was mine
embrace it was ours we survived that fear
and we did it all with a smile cut ear to ear
it’s all so clear, how did it ever seem normal
life in chaos, seemed so formal
you live with the monster then house it inside
you might never let it eat, but it still won’t die
