years of my life go by

in what feels like one blink

when you’re limited on time

it’s hard to find meaning

have you ever looked death in the eye?

she’s uglier than you’d think


in a room filled to the brim

i’ve never felt so alone

with my thoughts, dark and grim

i wish i never picked up the phone

but i don’t have to be lonely

because everyone likes my dress

so i’ll sleep in it tonight only

and maybe the next night and the next


it’s hard to frown

when you’ve got vaseline in your mouth

it’s hard to put your head down

when you’re held up by a crown

and i’ve got threads that spread

throughout both my legs

and make me do the dance

of your marionette
