Pick Up the Snake

And through photographs you showed me of a time known long ago
Every nickle you would save 'till you could buy a little more
And I've finally come to realize that I'm just as old as you
If not older from the things I know that you've never been through
So I'll kiss you on the forehead, smile, and cry my soul to sleep

And I know that pain has left you but it's in your shadow still
Everything you've gotten over in the dark waiting to kill
All the happiness and memory, all the normal you've acquired
Distance pours out like an ocean 'till you don't feel so inspired
Somehow I'm the one who's crazy as we fight ourselves to sleep

Through all this assumed perfection I forgot my favorite thing
That little gap between my teeth it lets me breath it lets me sing
I'll accept what's right when you dispose this rule book of the world
Kissing feet has got me nowhere disappearing seems to work
So I'll throw away my laurels and just drink my soul to sleep

I know it's impossible to stay away from all the troubles
I just have one last request
To find a place to shed my skin
Before this empty shell consumes the rest of me
