say goodbye

growing dissentions take over the night
she pretends, he pretends
they both say they cannot wait to say goodbye

he stands on thin wire, she lights him on fire
i gasp, i sit, i contemplate

the hour becomes sour
the matter grows fatter
they both cannot ignore the hate

my tears fill like wine
i'm drunk all the time
and it just gets better with old age

he dims, she roars
they have done this before
and in time they will relate

he fist, she pounds
maybe their purpose will be found

i listen, i learn, my eyes now have turned
to another road outside

he crawls, she runs
they both are not done

as i wait for them to say goodbye
