I can't find myself tonight

this is how I have truly felt all day.

The District Sleeps Alone
by The Postal Service

Smeared black ink:
your palms are sweaty
and I'm barely listening
to last demands
I'm staring at the asphalt wondering
what's buried underneath

Where I am

I'll wear my badge:
a vinyl sticker with big block letters
adherent to my chest
That tells you new friends I am a visitor here:
I am not permanent
And the only thing
keeping me dry is

Where I am

You seem so out of context
in this gaudy apartment complex
A stranger with you door key
explaining I am just visiting
And I am finally seeing
why I was the one worth leaving

D.C. sleeps alone tonight

You seem so out of context
in this gaudy apartment complex
A stranger with your door key
explaining that I am just visiting
And I am finally seeing
why I was the one worth leaving

The district sleeps alone tonight
after the bars turn out their lights
And send the autos swerving
into the loneliest evening
And I am finally seeing
why I was the one worth leaving


I don't know if these words will hold any meaning to anyone but me. But I feel stripped, invaded, called out. Something is missing here, Something isn't as it should be. My mind fights for control over fleeting emotions that have spread over my whole body. I'm awake, only because I can't sleep. I've been trying all day. All because I saw something that made me ashamed of what a man can do.

Don't let it get you down. Everyone has stuff like that happen to them. No big deal.

I watched a woman get treated like an animal, and have to defend her basic human rights to not be harrased.

It got me down because sometime people are put into situations that no one should have to go through. I hate seeing people have to fight for basic human rights.
