TL;DR Remember the climax of The Fifth Element? Like that, but for your whole life.


You never want to be the last match
if you can avoid it
and you can avoid it

You never want to be the last breath
if you can hold it
and you can hold it

This time you'll be the first one inside
You'll have the whole night
This time you'll be the last one outside
You'll have the whole night

Written on a match book from The Night Light:
"You'll come back", I meant it at the time
The ink all smeared, it always rains there
Should have just combusted there above Clinton St.
Or disappeared years before in DC
For all I was making of my life
It was wasted on me

The change you never got
I'm amazed you never fought
For everything you want, for everything you're not

Had you the patience
You had the time
You need a way out
Make up your mind
