about a dead spouse and a conniving one

lyrics

I saw you leaving the building when my mother disconnected the defibrillator
And my chest stopped rising
Your footsteps echoed down the corridor

Will you show up to the funeral if they have one?
Will it be a closed or open casket?
I don't know if I can watch it...
I'm more than a little scared right now

You didn't even cry
My death was no mark on your unsullied conscience
Show a little class
Go along with the act
For a little while
Hold back a smug smile

Let associations rise like a flock of birds from a field
Resentments rub and scathe like burning sand
I'm dead to you now as I have always been
It'd hurt more if there'd ever been anything real between us in the first place

Beautiful things don't ask for attention
Poetic, really, how I disappoint and bore you even now
In the end

Caress my body in the ground
Walk away
Flake Away
Like you want to
Like you always do
