Love Songs from Bad City


I was really focused, y’know?
Focused on my car.
Focused on what I’ve lost.
I’m a man now, but even a man still needs his father.
Love. Hate. Dreams. Ache.
All ache. Then all…Her.
She makes the music from my radio match the music from the stars.
And yeah, she killed my Dad.
But it’s the price of a new life and I’m taking it.
Wouldn’t you?

The Girl

I told you I was bad.
I made you a mix tape: “Songs to Kill Your Dad By.”
But I’ve learned a little.
I’ve learned I don’t know everything.
I’m still Eternal, but you make me a girl again.
Where are we going? I don’t know.
It’s like asking where the center of the universe is.
I’ll always be thirsty. You know that.
But I’m ready to try.

Instructions Upon Leaving

When you look into someone’s eyes and it looks like Hope,
then drive children.
Drive right out of Bad City, and don’t ever look back.

The Cat

It feels good to be home.
