You know I will overrate you.

Break you down,

make your spine into fossils

I will marvel at for centuries to come,

make you something to be learned from.


I will overrate you.

Make you a beautiful tragedy,

one I will want to build towers after,

one I will find a tribute for.


I will overrate you.

Give you a million when you think you’re a one

because I just found out there are people who will never know you,


I wouldn’t want to be them.
