You, singing drunk,
At a karaoke bar, low-key like a wannabe star

A hangover with nothing to quench your thirst,
No clothes but your shirt

Living with a person you love who's making a living off of your loving

It's not starvation but inability to feed your child
It's not being unloved but not being able to love
It's not ugliness but blindness to beauty

It's ignorance of the dark side of the moon
Light will be dark but will dark be light anytime soon?
