when the lights go blurry

when            the                          eyes            go            blurry

the lights                   go dim

the saltier                the tequila

the crowded                            the rim

in the sea                         of promises

of lava heat                          and steam

we sell you                          hope                  with trinkets

in your                    everyday             dream

the world                         was asleep

beyond            any            care

which is when                      we stole                  the crown

just by being                       awake              and there
