Track Name: Billboard (Live Acoustic)
he sees it on
the magazines,
on the billboard signs,
and on the silver screen:
to grab the goal.
to chase the ghost.
the man to whom the praise is due
is he who makes the most.

it's hard for one to see
when the poison tastes like tea,
and the sweet sincerity
conceals the mix.
the blank eyes flicker like
a dim fluorescent light
that keeps him up all night
when he's
away
from home.

the french perfume.
the satin dress.
though skin and skill will only fill
her sheets with deep regret,
she'll leave her ring
on the kitchen stool -
because winners chase the white whale
at the expense of all the crew.

and one day we will see
that all this make believe
was a billboard parody that we made up.
our blank eyes flicker like
a dim and dying fire.
the requiem.
the choir.
