Oxford Coma (Scott Thomas Outlar)

Love and lust and loss and loneliness

Infatuation is a timid kiss Amore is the pulse that never wearies

Break out your dictionary and tell me how the words are spelled

What context they should be used in How often they find new meaning

Tell me about the emotions you feel Are they nouns or verbs?

Lost in the riddle of tongues is the urgent need for action

Write me a poem, sing me a song Live me a story, bury my roses

Plant me a seed, reap me a marriage Grow me a child, slaughter my dreams
