The great lakes.
The heartache.
The words I never have to say.

The cold heat.
The concrete.
The rusty coast explained away.

The snow drifts.
Chapped lips.
The storm that flooded half the basement.

Black ice.
Tires screeching on the pavement.

I hope to see you sometime soon,
silhouetted by the moon.
Fluorescent lighting, tile floors,
private clubs with open doors.

The sign reads
I'm only
100 miles from my hometown.

The billboards.
The hard words.
Dragging feet on dirty ground.

Street lights.
Black tights.
Fuck those who say you had it coming.

To burn out,
Guns Out.
I'm not alone, and I'm not running.

I know your heart beats with mine,
I feel you in my spine.


from Guns Out, released March 21, 2014
