First World Pragmatism

When you drive up the hill in tights, breathing heavily,

When he says all that’s left to say and is silent,

When you fall in love at 3 am, drunk from tequila, music, and your first ever cigarette,

What else can you do but just go on?

 

When he says all that’s left to say and is silent,

When you watch documentaries on atomic bombs in the late afternoon at work,

What else can you do but just go on?

So you go eat a sandwich all alone in the canteen at ten.

 

When you watch documentaries on atomic bombs in the late afternoon at work.

When you don’t trust yourself walking over bridges past train tracks,

So you go eat a sandwich all alone in the canteen at ten,

Don’t tell me you want to stop.

 

When you don’t trust yourself walking over bridges past train tracks,

When you fall in love at 3 am, drunk from tequila, music, and your first ever cigarette,

Don’t tell me you want to stop,

When you drive up the hill in tights, breathing heavily.

 

What else can you do but just go on?
