One key where I hang my hat
One key for my gun
One key for my badass ride
One key for the trunk
Two keys for the lovers doors
Three I use at work
They’ll keep one cutting keys for me
Until my pockets bust
I throw keys out the window
I count them one by one
I keep tossing keys out the window
Until I am one key on the run

There is no key to this stolen car
No key to my kiss
No key to the lock box I broke open with my fist
There is no key to the bank vault no key to my cell
No keys to my hand cuffs
There will be no keys in hell
I am getting sick of the kind of doors
That needs a key to work
The things they talk me out of and these wages that I earn

No key to the bank vault no key to my cell
No keys to my hand cuffs
There ‘ll be no keys in hell
I throw keys out the window
I count them one by one
I keep tossing keys out the windo
Until I am one key on the run

afternoon moon

Written By: janet panic

Afternoon moon
Tongue tied eyes bloodshot half asleep at the bar
My glass is too empty, the exits too far
There is a quarter spinning in a puddle of beer
The clock keeps on ticking and I can’t stay here
Says you
I am out with the afternoon moon

Stay for a story stay for a drink
If you keep on talking then I won’t have to think
It seemed like a good call
Now I am in too deep
The bird will be squawking before I get to sleep
I am out with the afternoon moon

Wandering the streets in last night clothes
My feet are killing me in my high heeled shoes
I told myself last time I won’t do this again
But here I am sketching on my walk of shame
Around noon
I am out with the afternoon moon
I am out with the afternoon moon
