Look what we've done.

rjr440 



noons approaching midwestern time.
thinking about just past midnight with no reason or a rhyme.
where do we go from here, now that we've destroyed what we desire.
in the name of shooting stars for hire.

look, here she comes, the most ravishing of the royal mums.
we didn't come to hear what she has to say.
if we can just get that shot, we can collect our pay.

we'll pursue her day and night.
we'll pursue her, wrong or right.
into the shadows and into the sun.
right into heaven.
look what we've done.

don't bother blaming your fellow man.
lets just learn our lesson and start doing what we can.
to stop the insanity, start to preserve our humanity.
she's gone now, theres nothing left to see.
