Burning Car

I’ll put the nickel, in you

Draw my blood deep in the syringe

White lines capture my insides

Big and brass, girl or a boy

 

Load me with lead, one million degrees

I’m hot, a burning car

With each flower, I’ll plant the dreams in

My dry mind

 

There are ways to fix a broken sound

With my head in the sky, my ear to the ground

Ways to fix a broken sound

With my head in the sky, my ear to the ground

 

I’ll twist my neck in, the tight noose

While the night grows wide and dark

Squeeze through the tube, and don’t move

Your swollen mind and heavy heart

 

Load me with lead, one million degrees

I’m hot, a burning car

With each flower, I’ll plant the dreams in

My dry mind

 

There are ways to fix a broken sound

With my head in the sky, my ear to the ground

Ways to fix a broken sound

With my head in the sky, my ear to the ground

 

Keep me honest

And I won’t tell them

Make me promise

Oh, oh oh oh, oh

Empty room, so narrow

Suck marrow from your bones

Reach far across the room

And leave me all alone

 

I trained a bird to play

Painful, it perched on my left hand

Torn by your stinging gaze

Light-years engulfed in your pain

I have sworn you’re one of them

And I’m a stain on your report

I have sworn you’re one of them

A last resort

 

There are ways to fix a broken sound

With my head in the sky, my ear to the ground

Ways to fix a broken sound

With my head in the sky, my ear to the ground
