Thrill Rides

You tell yourself it will not crash

It will not veer off the track

The wind is right this time, your glasses safely in your pocket

And you’re right up front with an unobstructed view

I can see you

And I won’t hang upside down for more than a second

I just want to be off the ground and so do you

Because we really are trying to die we just want to do it from on high

Catapulted; that way we can’t be at fault for kissing the sky

Turning gravity into a temporary lie

We can say we tried

We’ll take the risk again and again to fly

Which is why

I’ll strap my heart in for another go around

And if I die its fine, love is blind

This time I just don’t want to throw shit up…

If I survive.
