Doorman Dave Is Our Savior

Why do you care who mans the elevator

Why do you give a fuck who jumps

From fifty million stories up

You write the pamphlets in the lobby

That recommend Death as a hobby

I’ve learned who I can never trust

Nobody fucks with kids like us

The doorman needs the goddamn courage

To cut the cords that suspend this shit

To burn the phone and snort the mints

To call a cab and wait for it

“We hope that you enjoy your stay”

Enjoy it? I just paid for this

With my autonomy and my wrists

“You can leave whenever you want”

Yeah bitch

But you set fire to the exits

We know the rules that stay unspoken

We trust the doorman cause you broke him

And we need him to pry the automatic doors open
