Countdown Carousel

I’m sorry, I’m sorry, I’m sorry, I’m sorry
does not cut the blades of grass
growing in my plane of vision

Vanilla, vanilla, vanilla
I am just a simple man
spit out by this lock-turn system

Cycle, cycle
pick up trash and kiss the street light
when the glow burns red atomic

tastes of God and smoke and blackout
bleeding from the sea, electric
