Exit Music

She has taught me to be honest
So that instead of keeping poison inside
I release it like a cloud of impending death
Like a gaschamber showerhead
Like listening to ukelele covers of Radiohead
Like hearing the exit music playing early
Because the stage is lit too poorly
And for a long time caution kept me steady
Kept my mouth shut and my heart heavy
But now its over and they have flown the coop
And acid rain will make your pretend flowers droop
And this false color photo will change to black and white
And this false front on our lives will suffer bliss and blight
Honesty is after all what she taught me
