The Coldest Wire

coldest wire

everybody’s singing these stupid songs
now who wants to hear them?
I try to write this but get it wrong
now what can be done about that?

everybody’s running to get there first
but I just can’t see it
I try to paint through all the light
but the stains break me

take the last train
that’ll get you there
that’ll get you home safe
I’ll be riding
the coldest wire
and I’ll never claim to be whole

Everybody’s sorry they have no way
and the sands are shifting
I try to make it but it gets so lost
in the shadowed mind

I won’t believe it
not what you say
not where you’ll go to
I’ll be riding
the coldest wire
and I’ll never claim to be whole
