coffee burns, the stomach churns
chemicals and caffeine
you saw her bathing in the creek
now you’re jealous of the water

now babe, if it’s alright i call you that
i’ve been running solo, but it ain’t all that
they say it’s the take and give
but emptiness knows just where i live
and emptiness knows me

was it just chemicals in my head

tell me why all these pages are flying round in the yard
how my hands can’t seem to find your hands in the dark
tell me, tell me how the hell did we get all the way up here
how gravity’s gone
