i see all your pictures and i check my phone
does this feel like indifference?
i lie to myself, though
i don't want to care, i want us to go down in smoke
but it's going to have to be for real

push away, push away
the last kiss, the blemished promises
push away, push away
the last happy day, white teeth on windy highways

pathology tells me to quarantine
put you in a patchwork chamber, blood-tight
but mine's so thin, deluded with spirits
your vague face causes a nightly outbreak

push away, push away
the tides, the waves, the hurricanes
push away, push away
our only escape
We're only strays.
