Brittny Kissinger: Music

A Scripted Farewell

(Tentacles Heavenward)
A Scripted Farewell
Launched…I am now turpentine skylines, determined to rub you away
Dead hearts beat while funeral handshakes remind us what we meant to say
You wear it so well…
Lost consciousness, though rumor states the privilege has yet to be granted
It’s time someone makes an example of you…to set new standards
Brainwash tripped over bravery, and they agreed we should all trade skin
Who bargains blood for tranquility when time is all that we have for certain?
It will outlive our kind…
So send down a smile when you reach your destination…on the other side
What talent it takes for one to moderate a god-complex such as your own
Just maybe this chapter of tragedy you’ve written is New Testament material
Welcome back for another nap in our mother’s driest cell
A scripted farewell…guess it pays to rehearse breaking a heart gracefully
Preaching Manifest Destiny with liberty scribbled on your skin
Shine me on with hypocrisy, while life is all that is lost for certain
Never looked good in black…
So send down a smile when you reach your destination…on the other side
Launched…I am now terror in Day-Glo, determined to lure you away
Dead pulse in my soul now replaces the words we were longing to say
You wear it so well…
