Your voice is a clouded day
Hues of white, specks of blue
It speaks to me with its normalcy

But I had to. Scream louder -
I wanted to tell some of these people to watch the sun-clipse
and understand love is a cheesy kind of asthma
with a lower survival rate, it has a faucet that won't turn off
even if you close your eyes and wish real hard

and banging your heels together,
people will seem pointless when hose pipes are banned again.
