You say yellow, you say sunshine; and frames from Bollywood movies. You say ‘I Love You’, you say it like you mean it. You say yellow, you say stay. You say paint me, paint us, you say come let’s take a nap. You say yellow, you say cold flames, you say flowers. You say yellow, I say stop. I say poison. I say ‘I Love You’, I say let me kill myself.
Wake up before the sunrays reach your skin,
And I know, I know you’re here.
Keep playing with these matches,
There’s not a lot of time left before
We turn into ashes. Wake up.
You know, the sound of your tears as they
Trail down your cheeks, they remind me how
Our angels get drunk too, and they paint the sky
In shades of tequila. Look at me.
Look at me, I’m shifting silhouettes for you.
Inhaling poison, grainy smoke, so much chaos.
Can you hear this thunder, hear it roar under my quivering lips?
Can you break away from your toxic stupor, just to watch me?
Watch me fall from grace. These walls, look,
These walls that surround you aren’t white anymore, they aren’t white anymore.
Can you feel me die? Can you touch me?
I’m a feather. Wake up. Look at me.
I’m a feather, I’m flying.
I’m a feather, I’m still breathing.
