Confetti

Midnight

The ashes of our ideals

Floated like New Year’s confetti

………………………………

Through the tunnel of apathy

You taught literature to me

In defiance of gravity

………………………………….

The pressure can kill you slowly

Or immediately

The victory can seem

Affirming

Or temporary

Rally around my stone set beliefs

Rally around my stone set beliefs

…………………………..

The comedown!

Will come around

The comedown!

Will come around

…………………………..

Well it was daylight

You were unsteady

We changed the outrage

But the details were petty

……………………………

Intellectual arrogance

A burden too heavy

The college philosopher

Never said a word to me

……………………………..

In the middle of a dream

With a metal factory

With a car and salary

With a burning city

With the guilty

And their aggressive pity

With a million facts to believe

And a VIP cemetery
