Still New Year
still new year
--------------------------------

once, the disillusioned warned me
that fireworks are only temporary
i watched the flares change colors then die
i watched it all dissolve in the dive

once, atrophy was welcomed to
murder the stars with the wishes of two
i watched you decorate this last night
i watched the blurs trail then fade then bye

well they flew, they flew!
and blemished the clouds with you
an encore or a new explosion
this genocide of constellations

if you're still there, make the new year's sky still

should i catch the residues of a blast named Change
or should i light a new fuse and clear the remains
watch and wait

still i let the seconds take me
still stuck in countdowns to be blown away
if you're still there, kill this new year
if you're still there

make the new years stay still
