I'd Watch Myself Fly

Just the beat

Of The Seven Nation Army

Reminds me

That my energy is contagious


And it is

Colossal


As well as


Never ending


It rises with the song


And I can fly again

Like I used to be able to

When I was a kid


I used to stare out the car window

When my family would go on a drive somewhere

And I’d imagine

Flying beside

The car


Above

The tree’s


Below the sky


I’d watch myself fly

From inside my parents car

And time would pass by

As I would fly

And in my mind

I really was


My stomach would turn

When I’d watch the kid

Do a nosedive


I imagined I/He was Superman


When I/He grew up

And realized

Superman is knock-off version of Christ,


Our stomach turned again.


And I/Him stopped

Daydreaming

About

Flying


And we started worrying

About

Living

And

Dying.


When I was a child

I'd watch myself

Fly

And now

As an adult

I watch myself

Die.


But music

Briefly

Gives me wings.
