Won’t give you your words back
They both went
Down the carpal tunnel
I’m hurting but I’m on track
Can’t live in my setbacks
They can’t win
Blame it on the suspect
Caught them typing on your keyboard
They knew all your passwords
They got to
Files that we forgot
Through screens of the next day
Find out what your texts say
It’s not safe
Write it in a notebook

It might be selfish
But I must reject objective truth
It’s through this point of view
That I can find the meaning to
All the comics in the notebooks that I leave for you
My heart’s the page and you’re the pen
And you are bleeding through
When we find we’re in approximate proximity
Lose half my breath because I can’t tell if you’re into me
Lose both my feet because I’m drawn in by your gravity
I’ve fallen over I can’t bring myself to follow through
I’ve fallen over I can’t bring myself to follow through
I can’t count on myself just enough to count on you
It’s not my fault that I had to fall in love with you
I’ve fallen over I can’t bring myself to follow through
(Are you going
Down like me
When you’re floating
Around like me)

Smart phones are getting smarter
Computers getting smaller
And here I am the same old guy
The future’s burning brighter
The margin’s getting wider
And there I go just scraping by
For fear of being narrow
We broke from the college rule
The pages, they stay the same size
We wrote down our old thoughts
Our to-dos our have-nots
Is ink worth the time bought?

Oh, Mead Five Star graph-ruled notebooks are all I really need
