from Where Have You Been by Mike Uva



when the ghost of my lover descended
all the furniture was upended
and i received a bright red slap on my face
i've been haunted since the day that i met you
i'll be haunted 'til the day i forget the desperate in his voice
when he asked me

what about the dinosaurs
leave it up to the meteoric rise of suicides
among the green and lonely
and what a sweet demise
to be buried in a bed of stone
bury me in blankets of ashes and bone

on a street where the houses are walled in
a little girl on the ground had fallen
dressed in lace, a dirty face and smiling
when i held out my hand to assist her
she held a fistful of dirt and said sister,
what inspires the sky to keep changing

(repeat chorus)

i've been dead so long
i sometimes think my words don't fill the air
so much as keep my mouth from watering

i was not designed to turn my mind away
from what has held me under a spell

i was not designed to survive this murder

(repeat chorus)
