Taking the Bait (Demo)
_____________________

from the pennsylvania pit, frozen tar on 26th,
where the counterfeits trade christmas gifts,
with the lost boys of sudan,
and they’re all alone, all alone,

in their plastic party hats, 2010 tons of trash,
for the hoot-and-holler laughs,
leaving the baby strollers home,

and they melt into the RGB,
just sleeping little silver screens,
and we’re just keeping warm like human beings,
and the calendar is our falling rain,
i just hope someone keeps these words we’re saying,
while we’re taking the bait,
while we’re sleeping our days away,

brass buttons pull from the vintage navy wool,
their bellies full, their capital, busting at the seams,
and it overflows,

they got lawn chairs in the streets,
where the tractor-trailers wheeze,
past the pot holes in their feet,
just outside the liquor store is home,

where they’ll melt into the RGB,
just sleeping little silver screens,
and we’re just keeping warm like human beings,
and the calendar is our falling rain,
i just hope someone keeps these words we’re saying,
while we’re taking the bait,
while we’re sleeping our days away,
