Empty packets of tea
Cigarette box cellophane
A rest stop like a million others
We note that this one’s clean
The scream of wheels on bridges
duck under overpasses
we shoot like plasma
through the thick of a vein  
It’s you and it’s me, it’s you and it’s me
Past the point of tallying sheep  
It’s these crazy clocks we keep
They’ve all got A.D.D.
And we day dream of sleep
Yeah, we dream of sleep – Sleep

The lights slip back
Yellow to green
We’re speeding, remaining
kind to memory

The lights slip back
Yellow to green
We bleed on splinters
we use later for kindling

The lights slip back
Yellow to green
We follow our eyes
Past the screen
Shift to fifth
Make it clean
I love the way you crash
though the ceiling

My heart beast hummingbird speed
with your hand on my knee
But I want you more than I need
to exhale, to expel the exhaustion I feel –
It’s cradled between my ears, in my head
neurons jump to implode
I’m already full up, and I don’t need to make sutures
with my teeth
to keep your wounds from waking  
You’ve got tough, tiny scars
and they laugh while you sleep  
Yeah, they laugh while we sleep – Sleep

The lights slip back
Yellow to green
We’re speeding, remaining
kind to memory

The lights slip back
Yellow to green
We bleed on splinters
we use later for kindling

The lights slip back
Yellow to green
We follow our eyes
Past the screen
Shift to fifth
Make it clean
I love the way you crash
though the ceiling
