Donated her eyes
When she was young and shy
Hated awkward breasts
And felt the yawning skylines

With care set sweet
To hear existence beat
To hold the tangible
And drifting ever so gently

Second summer sky
Donated her eyes
Donated her eyes
To feel her actual senses

So sweet sixteen
To feel what life was like
Donated her eyes
To feel life as she imagined it

Go back to sleep
You yellow-bellied freaks
Afraid of God and modern science
Go back to sleep
If I could only sleep
If I could stop imagining
If my dreams weren't after me

You curse and swear
Blanket the deafening hum
Of some great silence
The jingle jangle and the heat
The strangle and sheets
Terrible and fucking meaningless
