Old Friends

A violet umbrella she spins in the cold stabbing rain
a fortune teller could sell her
in a pirate parade
she juggles her needle
she looks for a new healthy vein
every breath that she takes is a moment she lets slip away

The flowers on the table have died long before you arrived
and the song that comes on the radio plays all the the time
you're talking in circles
the room gets so dark you can't see
then you find yourself in the gutter with blood in your teeth

Old Friends

You jumped from your window
to hide from the life you despised
but that couldn't kill you it just made you feel more alive
your heads filled with cobwebs
your memory lacks any pain
you feel your existence
has got to have someone to blame
