lyrics

I don’t know what
he was like
any better than
anyone does.
I see him, in old
albums opened up in my
cross-legged lap.
And he sees me
and he saw me
at the very moment
the image was taken
he pictured me watching
this ruin of him.

Why don’t you pass me (a cigarette).

The plastic white picture frame
is now off-white like a stain and you
chose your make up knowing
how it would change
shriveling up, and fading away.
For all of these years, shriveling up, and fading away.

Why don’t you pass me (a cigarette)

Why don’t you pass me
why don’t you?
Why don’t you pass me
like you do?
