Eucalyptus Burning

from Philistine Empathy EP by How Scandinavian



When exactly will I wake up?


flames extinguished as I awoke
from a slumber vague of details
past tense location
a friendly retrograde
subtle color within the shades

tell me this isn't the first time it has all burnt away...

so we missed it
we rebuilt it
but it is never replaced

we cannot return
took her in too
and spat out at the next bedside

such a warm youth
filled with myself
I will never bear it
I can't share this
and the bells ring without remorse
an eternal flame burns on that riverbank...

spilling black and white from a burnt volcano
and as I felt her skin melt
so did my blindness to this hell

another strange door to be afraid of
its howling takes me farther
with her knife in the lining of my pockets

and everything...
stays the same...
nothing changes... in this dream.
