rascal

it’s easy to give up
with fires burning
so to line up
without any warning
makes it seem to me
that you’ve got it down
wondering if it can be
put underground
never having to worry
about it making a sound
last chance
to show your hand
before we start
taking numbers
adding them all up
maybe then we’ll see
all the secrets
you’ve been keeping
as the flames start
to die down
all that was hidden
will finally be found
sift through the embers
for everything to be
revealed on the ground
your best laid plans
left in the ruin
could have been avoided
if hadn’t stuck around
