what where you thinking about
did you see me and you had a doubt
about the
feel of my skin
on different parts of your chin
that it might irritate your stubble
and make your mind and stomach stumble


faces apart 


So what we're we talking about
did you like how I handed back your pride
and made that smart mark of yours reside
like a
child crying that's not mine to dare
fish dying when I'm drinking a bottle of water without a care
just here watching while trying to dig your fingers in the air


hands fall apart


Look down and stay on the ground
give it up, I've handed you down
I wanted something, but when I look at you now
I pretty sure that something, was the thing that made you drown
and I'm sorry
so sorry
that I gave in but hid
but the bottle to my pioson has already closed it's lid

STOP won't remember me anyway
