lyrics

{3. WARHEADS} Here lies a traffic jam diffuse particular congestion we’re all charged up with nowhere to go we’re all fired up and blowing like snow horizontal on a driving southwesterly there’s bald-faced boredom on the driver’s face next to me our eyes meet our heads nod our ankles flex and it’s on anxiety wears a happy face it’s distracting, and it fills the space that’s left by the pretty girls that you never met that’s left by the old mistakes that you can’t forget clenching on a black vinyl steering wheel the white-knuckled gaze of determined sex appeal their eyes meet their heads nod they spit out sentences that run on like warheads new pencils to push white doves in the hand and black hawks in the bush the silos are silent tonight as the caretaker turns out the light fingertips drumming on the desk anticipating red buttons to press they’re just like candy when you’re craving a fix they’re just like candy when you take it from kids playing with a cast-iron poker face these chain-links like allies and fingers are interlaced their eyes meet their heads nod he’s taking his clothes off his eyes glaze his head bobs a sleeping hand lances out for the bombs like warheads new pencils to push white doves in the hand and black hawks in the bush the silos are spoiling for a fight in a place somewhere far from alright
