Intimacy in Forsakenness II

she’s not quite as empty
when he moves inside her
puts cash in her pocket
and a point in her arm

he’s not quite so helpless
when he is on top
and she does what he says
to get what he has

and we’re not really thinking
we’re just barely surviving
my friends and my lovers
are all motherfuckers
and who has time to give a damn
yeah who has the time
and why should it matter
to me

it’s fullness and power
it’s a happy disease
it’s a picture of us
unsure if we’re dreaming

it’s the lie that they tell us
that each life is worth living
that each action has meaning
but not these no not these

and we’re not really thinking
we’re just barely surviving
my friends and my lovers
are all motherfuckers
and who has time to give a damn
yeah who has the time
and why should it matter
to me

whether a light that’s too bright
or a darkness too deep
i will place myself here
and not look away

no don’t look away
although it might blind you
don’t look away
though there’s nothing to see

don’t look away
