Carbon Monoxide

from Feelgooderie by Kick Ptarmigan

lyrics

I don’t really feel like
I’d have to choose between
who’s riding on my shoulders
and who’s burning in their sleep.
‘Cause I have shoulders wide enough for two,
And my best bet’s that I could carry you.
Carbon monoxide, you’re

A skyscraper of some kind,
There’s hundreds in this town.
A pillow fort is built for fun.
You turn the photographs face-down.
You stay. Could you stay?

‘Cause I am like a carnival, and you’re multivitamins.
Your ounce of prevention has me tasting my own medicine.
You could be a little less, so I could have some more.
‘Cause you live in the real world
And I’m just some kind of metaphor.

But I have shoulders wide enough for two,
And my best bet’s that I could carry you.
Carbon monoxide

I have shoulders wide enough for two,
And my best bet’s that I could carry you.
But carbon monoxide wasn’t cheating on you, too.
