pm.................................................................
We were fading like the bottom of a bad dream.
We were heading south looking for a good time.
Faces look so pretty in the spotlight.
All blown out and bathed inside a world of white.
Sometimes I feel like I am holding it together.
Sometimes I feel like everything is fine.

pm.................................................................
It was sunny on the streets down there by the water.
We would get hammered on the beach right down by the water.
She was slightly out of reach, a rich mans only daughter.
I think she slept with me just so she could piss off her father.
I am elastic. I am easy with the damage.
I am ecstatic. I am hungry for the climb.

pm.................................................................
Those faces look so scary in the harsh light.
All blown out and bathed inside a world of white.
We were shining like the good part of a bad time.
We were laughing, happy just to be along for the ride.

I feel like I am falling? Like my life is on a slide.
