Ten Foot Grin

from Fever Dreams by Poison Coats



Rattle 'round my brain
Looking for something to help sustain
Sifting through the mire
Putting the flames to sleep beside the fire

If there's something I should know, please tell me now
If there's something I should do, please tell me how

Picking at my skin - looking to find the guilt that lies within
(I couldn't find it with a ten foot grin)
Mistaking lies for faith
Fishing for men on a boat that's made up of living and breathing and kicking and screaming bait
It's such an actual disgrace
Devoid of the reasons that kept us here in the first and the second, the third and the last place
And I'm coughing up desire
Christening the sex we set on fire

If there's a light left in your eyes, you should put it out
There is not one single thing you should know about

Cause I keep having these fever dreams
Where I am covered in a warm sunbeam
A fire starts and I am trapped inside
And I can't put it out, no matter how hard I try

Shooting like a satellite
And crashing like the stars across the midnight sky on a string like a floating kite
I'm pissing vanity
Restructuring conceit into humility soaked in reciprocity

Could you give me a minute to explain all the things that I cannot wrap around my brain?
I didn't need it anyway

Cause I keep having these fever dreams
By the ocean in a bright moonbeam
Where I die holding a wedding ring
Beside my bride, I think she's seventeen
And I could not tell you why
All I think of is a wishing well
My other thoughts have all gone straight to hell
I'm fishing for them like a compliment
Without a direction; without any common sense
