Do You Know What It's Like (To Fall Apart)I feel myself crumbling to pieces
Like a puzzle being smashed over a table
I glued myself together once
And I was such a pretty picture for a while
But I forced the bond to snap
Like a perfectionist who saw a piece out of place
And forced the whole mess back into the box

Open up; feel the reds.
If not, try and see them. There is a place
of deep knife marks, a street
long as midnight
you may learn something there.
Valentina's voice glimmers like red wine.
You may enjoy intoxications. Still,
know alcohol has no story
and will swallow your own.
Find the sign with the wolf on it.
You'll know the place. Epiphanies ring true as church-bells.
Lucca still guides the wanderers
