Beautifully Going Down

Take a heartless purple eye.
Take a long sincere goodbye.
It is so late at night,
But the fire burns inside.

No, knowing every direction is closed.
I just chose to sacrifice.
I’m so young at heart,
Your stale-drunk broken flirt.

Take a boatless cruise party.
Take an empty bottle of whiskey.
I crash my eye.
Crash everything inside.

Yes, knowing I’m nothing but firewood.
And the truth, it has to die.
Which way should I try?
My stale-drunk broken lie?
