Modern Diet

Lyrics

Tiff said my candles are out for blood

Nothing should smell like they do

Katie hands me a paper bag

She says it's filled with the truth

I jump inside and turn on the lights

Turn out we aren't alone

Everything is connected now

I should probably go

Maybe when we're older

We can find a way to live that will not

Kill us in the process

Let's just think about it later

I've got plans this afternoon

I'm sure well get to it soon

The sky is hundreds of baby clouds

The earth is breathing us in

My body feels its impermanence

My mouth is stuck in a grin

I jump outside and turn off the lights

The city searches my face

For any sign of magnificence

The city steadies her gaze

Maybe when we're older

We can find a way to live that will not

Kill us in the process

Let's just think about it later

I've got plans this afternoon

I'm sure well get to it soon

For every mood
