It’s easier if I bend forward
So you can put your ear right up against my skull
Listen closely to my head – listen very closely
What does my brain sound like?
Can you hear every thought?
Do you think you know what goes on?
Can you feel that warmth of fever?
Or is it the glow radiating
Up and out from my heart?
Like the end of a cigarette lit
Is it too hot to the touch?
Does it burn you to know?

What does psyche sound like?
Does it echo beneath my skull?
Can you hear what’s in my head? – Listen very closely

Can you sense the one that’s ours?
This is louder than burn
This is taller than hurt
Did our connection pop like a dynamo?
Did a hole in the exhaust pipe startle you?
Was there too much “real” inside my skull for you…
So, to prevent a second or third degree reality-burn
You dropped and let go
Though you held tight and listened
It seems you still
