WE WERE BOUND (TO BEND THE RULES)

Written by Judah Nagler



half-full loses weight once you taste it / so for now my empty glass must mean i've chased it / but i'm not wasted and i'll not waste it / the dealer laced it with a new decree of our separation / how many have you taken? / and i could run off at the mouth / for hours on end, like i'd gone senseless / but i'm just speechless / rendered me defenseless / barred from your presence, my name from present-tenses / and yes, i've sensed this / since early august / i'm not dense and it's obvious that you're more than just friends / but i'm not against this / i'll remove our fences / and just hide in these sentencing sentences / till things can start making sense / it's a roseate opiate ruse of roguish rouge / that brings back my black and bruised blues / the sea, our torpid frames pale upon the beach / entwined in love's sans, between those sheets

remember / i mean, really think back now / to the very last time you were happy / and yeah, i know, got the job, got the family / got no free time, and still they'll take what's left / now we're running on empty but i know we can make it / can't turn around / and we can't change our destination / but when our transmission ends / they'll rescue us / and we'll start from where we land / it's roseate opiate ruse of roguish rouge / that brings back my black and bruised blues / you can't rob the coppery tide of her cherry-ish hues / the shores of these sheets recant refuse / forget about the wedding rings we lose / only greater love will see us through / it don't matter now how long we've played the fools / we both know we were bound to bend the rules / you should know by now, we never lose / no never, never / you can mock the malleable calms of ancient rule / forever and ever / or forgive them for they know not what they do / whatever, whatever / so rose mary's baby to sing the truth / for worse or for better / now, the idiosyncrasy when they serve the savants / and the mouth of the iris learns to let the light in / may the end of our times make way for the rules that we bend / times are always changing, but life never ends
