Always The Same

always the same

bang bang and after a rickety clack
sting box in a truck racing away
a bang again a click track truck
chock up with cops and 

always the same

long fire bang bang a short fuse as ever
a big old excuse as big and old as ever
a click track clack as rickety as ever
a bang again a body as cold as ever

always the same

blue snicker at one more snapped thread
a snap at a snicker and a fire to follow
a fire that follows the click bang bang crack
bang bang nursery rhyme for a cold kid

always the same

sneaked snaps from cell phones 
always the same cold kid always the same
roar of horror ghost rising ghosts rising
cracked cops and crushed crowns always

the same
