If we all were birds

I’ve been lonelier than this
but the time is crawling slow
like the blood inside my fists
contained in clotted lava flow.
I’d like your hands to hold my wrists,
but got your tendency to go,
and that’s the thought I can’t submiss
so now the gasket’s got to blow.

When the pressure hits the peak
I bet my eyes begin to glow
and in the wake of your deceit
I’ll let my monsters start to show.
And if you ever ask to meet
you’ll just encourage them to grow
cause they homestead from within
but on the skin you’ll never know… so…
We could all be in the sky
looking at the earth below
but even if we all were birds
you’d be the dove, I’d be the crow.

If we all were birds
