Staring at the sun

Iíve been going blind, out of my mind
staring at the sun, looking for the essence
of yesterday

Where are you now that I need you?
tinted through these black-out glasses
that blur the lines of light we snorted
back when the heat didnít melt our insides

Iím in love with a lie
the equilibrium of a rainbow bubble
blown through a tennis racket
leaving me soapy and sodden
in the cloudy blown wind

Itís been raining down upon me
itís been raining down upon you
weíre been waiting for the snow
and snowmen with teeth
youíd eat me if I didnít taste so dark
and Iíd let you if you werenít so milky
mixed with broccoli

The things I want, I donít need
and the things I need, I donít want
seven hours in and I felt like a kite string
seeking out the moon
while you were on your way to the sun
unkissed by the starry night

The daylightís coming
the sunlightís come
Iíve been going blind, out of my mind
staring at the sun, looking for the essence
of yesterday

I taste like her mouth, and you taste like silence
and I donít want to breathe tomorrowís ash tray breath
without you beside me
to take a bite out of my iced darkness
blinded by the sun
