THE LAKE IS MADE OF GLASS, I'M SURE OF IT

THE LAKE IS
GLASSY TONIGHT
TOMORROW AT DAWN
I GO BACK TO NEW YORK
IT'S HARD
TO LEAVE
TONIGHT I MET THREE
WOMEN FOR DRINKS
WE LIVED TOGETHER FOR
THREE YEARS
IN A HOUSE
NO ONE LIVES TOGETHER NOW
WE SAT
AND DISCUSSED
GOSSIP
AND THE CURRENT COURSES
OF OUR LIVES
IT WAS THE FIRST TIME
IN MONTHS
I'VE BEEN ABLE TO
TELL SOMEONE
OPENLY ABOUT MY JOB
AND MY LOVE
WITHOUT THE FEAR
OR REJECTION
THEY SAID "GROSS"
AND "I'M REALLY HAPPY FOR YOU"
AND THEY WERE GENUINE
I FELT ADORED
THEY ALL CAME TOGETHER
BECAUSE I WAS THERE
AND WE SHARED THINGS
WE PLAYED THE SMASHING PUMPKINS
EVERYTHING WAS NICE
THE LAKE IS GLASSY TONIGHT
I KNOW WHY I AM GOING BACK
IT'S TOTAL BULLSHIT
BUT THATS FINE
TONIGHT
I HAVE A FANTASY
OF GETTING BEATEN
HORRIBLY
AND SURVIVING IT
AND STILL BEING BEAUTIFUL
THE LAKE IS SO GLASSY
