Forever the Sound

Where do your heroes go when they die?

Suicide, overdoses,

Preventable Death on a celebrity spree.

27, 34, 48, 52.

Never aging.

Overpriced t-shirts,

unplayed records,

bastardized fashion.

Commercialized cash cows

always stuck on repeat.

The Sour Girls play musical Angry Chairs

As the Spoonman chases Lithium

with a glass of water from the Sound.

In Atlanta, the Man In the Box

uses a Sliver of steel to break free

from his Rusty Cage.

The dead are immortal amongst the airwaves.
