She's drowning in all this oxygen
Half-dead in a bathtub full of ice cold air
She whispers through clenched teeth
That the trees are all dying
Decaying and fading into the sky
Leaves turning into iron stars
Falling from the sky onto our heads
Until our crowns break open
And out pours the dreams of generations
A rainbow liquid streaming down our cheeks

But nothing changes

She's burning holes through her skin
Just with her fingertips and cigarettes
Brushing her hair with an acid laced comb
Screaming softly into oblivion
The oceans turning into sunshine
Drying up like dead philosopher's tongues
Wriggling between our legs
Filling up our lungs with salty water
So soon there will be nothing left
And waves will be but a memory

But nothing changes

She's sewing silk into her thighs
Pushing the needle through her skin
Smiling at the bloody black ribbon
Singing to all our long lost souls
Tonight the mountains crumble into butterflies
They'll fly away from our world
Leaving us in one dimension flat and boundless
We will try to speak but our mouths are filled
With all the thoughts we thought were true
And eventually we will die
While she'll wear the sun around my throat

But nothing changes

And as everything stays the same
She grows thinner every day
Eyes wide as if to terrorize
Thoughts drifting into fantasy
Where fays live and nothing dies
Except the horrific mankind
Shooting something into her blood
Breathing smoke and chemicals
Chewing pretty little white pills

And as demons plague her mind
She screams and thrashes in the grass
Clothes ripped and stained colorful
A rainbow of crudeness
She's the definition of the opposite of living
But not quite dead
Or at least not today

Because overdose tastes better tomorrow
