The sharp side of a jackknife: oh how it glows.
Strapped into a death chair: bloodied nose.
Day in, day out: cuts you slow.
Drain every ounce of strength, on a wiggled toe.

A blue screen on a black night: oh how it blows.
An IV: made of wires and coppered hose.
Sign in, sign out: open/close.
Kill every burst of light, with the slowest dose.

Wrap the wires around your neck
Pull them tight and to the left
Tie your best knot.

Hang the wires from overhead
Get on top of your desk
Take one last step.


from Versus Utah, released November 2, 2010
