- Needle Fingertips -


from across the room
needle fingertips beckon
a reckoning
a second look
a second toke
a trip down memory lane
where lapses in the brain
echo and burn
holes in walls
acid dripping
from molten handshakes
long-lost politics
long-lost motives
lobbied by shadow people

she tried to dance it all away
dollar bills raining down
he whispered in the dark
this is how it goes
grabbed her broken shell and
twist it
turned it
smoked it
burned it
paper doll
paper doll
paper doll dancing
pricked and pulled
by needle fingertips
bloodshot eyes
skin on fire
bugs crawling
crawling
crawling
crawl

mouthful of snakes
whisper sweet poems
of a better tomorrow
corrupt bone marrow
promises to take the pain away
today
he said
he said
he'd change the world
he'd save the girl
she laughs as needle fingertips
pierce her veins
pierce her brain
take these splintered moments
home again

city of fire
town painted red
chilly shadow people
in the dark
the breeze
the wind
the sound of sound
dance on
dance off
get down
get down

blurry acid eyes
lost in the fog
lost in the groove
cracked mirrors
everywhere she looks
his venom smile
his venom touch
makes her come
the air so thin
the pulse so strong
heartbeat
drum beat
techno beating
faster
harder
deeper
farther
needle fingertips
point at the sky
point at the sky
point at the sky
point at the sky
point at the sky
higher
and higher
and higher
and higher

from across the aisle
needle fingertips beckon
a reckoning
a second look
a second toke
a trip down memory lane
where lapses in the brain
echo and burn
holes in walls
acid dripping
from molten handshakes
long-lost politics
long-lost motives
lobbied by shadow people

she votes by brick
into window billboards
he whispered on the telly
this is how it goes
shaking babies
plastic smiles
promises of change
that never come
eat from hands
with needle fingertips
and you'll get fucked
again
and again
and again
and again
