"Long Day"

"Long Day"
written after the clouds rolled in by jake kilroy.

I buried death in the backyard
and drank lemonade for the afternoon.

I pulled misery out of its sports car
and beat him into submission.

I saw desperation at a bar
and dragged him to the curb.

I took heartache for someone else
and tied him up in his own house.

I saw that rage wasn't home
and burned his house to the ground.

It was a long day.
