Dreaming the apocalypse

Spinning me new ones
Bleeding my money away
Amtrak
Gasoline
Closed out
Metrolink
Rail lines
With too few options

This is my America
A place where you can’t afford
Gasoline
But breads everywhere
You can stay where you stand
And get fat like everyone else

But you won’t see the rest
And if you travel
And if you try
To chase your dream
You will die

You will get sick
Go mad
Get hungry
Hide your eyes and sigh

You will be betrayed by a thousand lovers
And wake up every weekend
Missing your forgotten loves
And grasping for footholds
On the open air

Dreaming the apocalypse was today
When it’s always tomorrow
