DOMINO ON THE WIRE.

Domino on the wire,
Turn up the dark,
Take me higher,

Feeling this curse,
Turn and play in reverse,
Security and humble needs fire,

From destiny’s verse,
Collected and spent,
The luck from the devils purse,

Watched through half cut eyes,
These fucked up and wasted lives,

A young man,
Popular handsome,
But dead in his car,

Balanced on the edge,
Falling very far,

Domino on the wire,
Turn up the dark,
Take me higher,

Mind the gap,
Your confusing mouth,
Spills with lyrical traps,

An abstract advocate,
Empires of desires,
Live with expectation,

Broken with complication,
Full responsibility taken,
For our sense of isolation,

With uncertain certainty,
At the present time,

Everything driven,
With double standards,
Pulling screws,
Twisting nails,

Domino on the wire,
Turn up the dark,
Take me higher,

Cutting skin,
Blood bleeds pale,
Drunk and loaded,

Outsided seems languid,
Pressured head seems to pop,
Natural feelings stop,

Need escape to drown,
Really only to waver,
This foolish frown,

Can’t do everything,
Can’t do anything,
Not one thing,
Not the other,

Desire poured silver locket,
With broken heart filled pocket.

DOMINO ON THE WIRE.
