Cure For Your Halo

from by No More Parachutes



we are the monuments
to childhood cataclysms
diminishing distance
disrupting revision
and holding back the tears
so they can linger always
never to dry away
better off unclaimed
better the cheeks unstained

so now your avatar
begins to show its wear
and you must leave behind
the burdens you can’t bear
nearer the tigers creep
closer to desolation
don’t force a happy ending
from bad information
it won’t increase your station

we’ve got the cure for your halo
come see if it’s worth it
in the end

the low October sun
is always hanging ‘round
desperately clinging to
scraps of summer
look how it stares at us
“why don’t you take a picture?”
let’s take this good time
down underground
where shadows can’t be found


glass houses
crystal gardens
crushed to dust
no one there to guard them

don’t act so confused
you knew this could happen to you

I tried to be what you want me to be
but you’ll never catch me now
