Curtain Call

This cold July storm
mean's the weather's all wrong,
the curtain of summer is closing too soon
teasing me with a false finale

I wish everything were different
and I didn't think about endings
how it will happen

I don't want time, you can have it
I want the sudden explosion
of glass and metal
I want my heart to stop
as if someone flipped a switch
as if a fuse blew

I want my curtain to fall
swift and permanent
no lingering
no slow mental decline
keep the hospitals far away
I want the exit all at once
