sit up and count
she is a number
floating in chalk grains
slapped on a green paste
written in graphite
written in ink
sinking, sinking
stop and think
do the math
lay down and count
stop and think
stop and pass out
stand up and clutch
she is your freedom
etched out in steel
stamped in a stone floor
falling like soap
dropping your hope
dropping, dropping
wake and mope
do the math
lay down and clutch
wake and mope
awake too much
