You ever look up? Or look in at all? Look it up Look up The ceiling fan is old, and creaks, and the ceiling is swollen, and scaly. The paint is but a memory. The memory is bad. Look up

You ever look up?
Or look in at all?
Look it up
Look up

The ceiling fan is old, and creaks, and the ceiling is swollen, and scaly.
The paint is but a memory.
The memory is bad.

You ever look up? Or look in at all? Look it up Look up The ceiling fan is old, and creaks, and the ceiling is swollen, and scaly. The paint is but a memory. The memory is bad. Look up

Lay back down The pulsating, pounding feeling of a headache It’s impossible to sleep, so it’s impossible to wake The burning feeling in your eyes The ceiling fan, everything, seams to be synchronized The pipes in the walls hiss and scream. The headache, you’ll never miss, screams. You scream, Look up

It’s nothing new Sit up or try to Push Close your eyes, breathe out Inhale, exhale Let go, don’t shout The house howls and moans The headache is hardening You growl and groan The pain is deafening Push

Lay down, Sudden Atrophy Lack of movement Almost Congruent with the bed Keep still Keep still to lessen the pain in your head Motionless at best Much Less than the house; Shifting, teetering, tottering A see-saw The ceiling fan seams to see all

Lie down Lay down Keep still, your head won’t pound It’ll pop Palpitations and popcorn problems Stop But still Where did the memory go You don’t know Just, Look up
