Sharp little teeth

There’s a flying fox that’s squealing over trees
and another dead that’s hanging over me.
With its wings out, that dirty carcass mocks my own.
Weighs those wires down, a shame that feels like stone.

Shame, shame, what a solid shame.
I can’t seem to make myself
take all this heavy blame

And now every time I’m walking underneath
I feel it’s pointed snout and sharp little teeth
There are spiders out, web their warnings in the air.
You might be gone, but guilt is everywhere.

Shame, shame, what a solid shame.
I can’t seem to make myself
take all this heavy blame

Watching shadows creeping slowly up the walls
and the amber leeching out as the sun falls
I am not a man who lies down without a fight
but there’s no one here, still my throat goes tight.
