how to keep from turning back

designed weight

we keep from floating off

well past the marks

pull the cords across

and sink in what we all forgot

in what we all forgot

you’re fooling yourself

i’ve struggled to see

what a future would say

that we were better off

some other place?

that we were better people?

or better fakes?

you’re fooling yourself

drag the lake

so i can breathe, so i can breathe

you’re not coming back

and that’s the way i want it

this is what we wanted

you’re fooling yourself
