The papier-mâché man

Cupped his world in his hand

Says “It’s the prettiest thing that I’ve ever seen”

“Now there’s nothing that I won’t understand”

But I know I can’t afford that

So I keep my world under a nightcap

The place of thieves where no one leaves

And the shadows shoot each other in the back

No more conversations

Just broken hearts and inebriated


Blown off course by the violent force

Of miscreations

Regret to lend the fear for an end

I’m lost in a backlog

With faces I can’t see and friends done wrong

I hope this won’t last long

The sun to fall away from it all

It’s hard to keep that care now

The seams are split and you don’t care how

The tear aways of misfortune days

Are here to finally bring you down

Now I’m just Johnny No Name

I’m built with broken sticks and I glow shame

Brace for a spell cast to give me Hell fast

But I enjoy the rain

Winded conversations

With broken arms and intoxicated


Hit with the pain like a thousand trains

Of devastation

Seeking to be embraced

As always - cool deep song.
