flush

I stuffed my pockets with kings and aces but I've lost the game anyway,
and now I'm sitting here in a pair of underwear so eager to fall off of my body in front of an opponent I know nothing about,
and now he's surveying me with perverted glances and skillful hands that urge me to forget about you,
and now I've lost another round, my last piece of clothing escapes me and moves through the door all by itself,
and now I'm covered only by the shell I've created and existed within for so long,
and now my petals fall to the ground, in slow motion and
     cards are all around us as we move together in the dark.
     cards are all around us as i forget about your heart.
     cards are all around us as we move together in the dark.
     cards are all around us, cards are all around us.
and now I'm sorry I forgot about you, I'm sorry I forget sometimes
and now I'm sorry that you're crying, dear, I'm sorry I forget sometimes.
and now I'm sorry that I told you, dear, I'm sorry I forget sometimes.
and now I'm sorry I forget sometimes, I'm sorry I forget sometimes.

I stuffed my head with lies and fallacies but I've lost you anyway.
and now I'm sitting here with my hands over my head praying to a god I don't believe in and a saint I know nothing about,
and now I'm scrawling notes across my skull and I'm pretending you didn't find me out,
and now I've lost the only thing left that wasn't a game in my life,
and now I'm breaking the shell I've created and existed within so long,
and now I realize there's nothing inside, the emptiness falling out in slow motion but still
     cards were all around us as we moved together in the dark.
     cards were all around us as i forgot about your heart.
     cards were all around us as we moved together in the dark.
     cards were all around us, cards are all around us.
and it was just a game.
