im beyond that
im too far beyond that now
all i can hear are the nuclear sirens
all i can do is pray for the tidal wave
of fire
no more bad poetry to distract from
the loud immutable truth
i have suffered too much
my heart has been shattered far too thin
i stumble forth in my reverie of agony
unable to turn my gaze to your
glaring disneyworld falsehood attempting to 
prove your genius by blinding us to the
blinding light
now there is only the truth
i am far too beyond it all
to compose tipsy songs of flowery
reverie and triviality
i wait chewing my nails and slicing my skin
for that tidal wave of fire
so that i may see your ocean of lies evaporate
like so many millions of my teardrops
