I lurch down the sidewalk
I trip in the cracks
I hear all the small talk
But I’m not talking back

My heart’s a boomerang
That never ever learns
That there is no such thing
As any happy returns

Terrified of my own shadow
Haunted by the harsh daylight
Lost, exposed on vacant side streets
Panicked in the crowds at night

My arms hang heavy at my side
My heart so very sore
My thoughts are all pure cyanide
I’m empty to the core

I’m a boomerang
