Nicotine (What the Wind Brings)

2012

"The sharpest pain

In my nerves

disperse

the lights flashing

and I'm reacting

to nothing at all

your voice

is in there...

your face

is in there...

deception, 

I'm no fool

I want nothing from you

yet I envy you...

how I envy you...

Hear them narrate

from the canopy

only you silence

the impact, 

the din

the voices in there...

the faces

in there...

blind-sided

you right 

the rules

why must I need you?

why must I need you?

the smoke hangs in the heat

sopping humidity

dragging the dead to their TVs

Nicotine

reverse me

night shades 

that one prays, to

but I'm happily alone again

I need nothing

I hear nothing

but what the wind brings

I need nothing

I hear nothing

but what the wind brings"
