from Shakedown by Space Thief



she was a flight risk from Mars
queen of all the fading stars
a burnt-out goddess of quasars
shining no brighter than the ember on her cigarette

it was like watching a plane crash up close
intimate thoughts flashed through her eyes
she was the dying girl that never died
I watched her when she came back to life

why are all these people waiting for the world to end
burning all the cities
tearing out their children's minds
it's not Armageddon
it's a suicide for all mankind

all the broken gods and goddesses
pouring out their creativity
we could have ruled the world once
now we just watch it burn
and write a dirge
and light cigarettes in the flames
burn down the whole damn universe


from Shakedown, released April 20, 2010

Space Thief Salt Lake City, Utah

When the genre police visited the space thief in his iron cell, they found they could not commit a name to his crime, and were crippled litigiously by his whimsy.
