in this world

from night owls by varsity drag

in this world

call in the cavalry—
nobody loves you:
all the water rolls, it flows into the ocean...
you're such a tragedy—
you were a crack shot.
falling with the rain: it is not pain, it is not you

and in this world I know
you're the only one.
I tried to let you down—
I flew into the sun.
and nothing's quite enough
to take away the pain,
but we keep getting up
to do it all again...

take in the scenery—
and keep your trap shut—
all the miles gone by, her mind can fly so fast now
don't get your dander up;
who can remember?
falling farther in, I feel my skin, and I am home—

and in this world I've known
the thunder and the rain;
the sky is full of snow;
the weather's gone insane.
and in this world I've felt
you're my phantom limb.
waking up so slow—
it's reveille again—

and in this world I know
there's no one here at all.
watch the sky collapse
and slide across the wall.
I turn to you my dear,
and take your battered hand—
'cause in this world I know
nothing goes as planned
