I remember
I remember
like an infinite wall I can't climb
but I can see the other side
just enough to make me Want to climb
more tattoos
more radioactive waste
more impenetrable sounds
more dead fingernails
how much more can we stand
how much more till it breaks
I've stood here waiting
I've out waited them all
I paid my respects
I paid my dues
now I've worn out this vinyl
and my records clean
all I want is just a taste
a small piece of reprisal
some red carpet somewhere
I don't care
just make the marker
and show me where to stand
so I can catch that light
and rest peacefully
in the minds of others
