you’re too far out of line and you can’t expect moral decency keep an open mind hope for the best hope for the end just don’t tell me just don’t say this will get easier I heard you then I hear you now I know that I’m living dangerously I heard you then I hear you now I told you that I’ve tried everything and everything is gone
catch and release, a misunderstanding or just a straight up fucking lie and always assume there’s gotta be a motive there must be something we’re meant to understand we’ve been here for years and we keep coming back wondering under the overcast: how much longer can this last? you couldn’t keep up with us anyway you got lost inside the machinery
we couldn’t have a simple conversation without revealing the fools we are made a decision long ago to never compromise chances we had, all the misadventures ever obeying our foolish hearts never again: an alternate ending we could quit waiting forever tonight I keep close what belongs to me, ignoring their/your opinions and whatever becomes a reason to continue but if I only get one chance, I’ll be goddamn sure to make it right destroy the foundation we built and that we used to call our lives we’ll bring in the wrecking ball we’re not incapable of inventing possibilities
when the heavens fall you don’t owe anything and when the heavens fall you’re done within and you’re heart is racing and your mind is racing and they won’t stop they won’t stop talking and you can’t find the center you’ve become convinced you’ll never make it this time when the heavens fall you don’t owe anything you could have it all you’re done within
Open Space 05:21
you can never get enough of what you’re missing it’s not an option you could try to get away from what you’re thinking but you’re still stuck in your head only you can realize the scenes you’re dreaming there’s no time to explain and though you wanted to deny the words you’re reading they’re still stuck in your head when nothing looks like it should and you’ve had enough feeling hopeless don’t worry cuz we’ll never talk walk away and be just another ghost to us so don’t worry we’ll never get caught and don’t worry cuz it wasn’t our fault
The Cutter 03:35
as a matter of fact, you’ve got the whole thing sideways don’t bother checking back, cuz I’m done overexplaining another place and time, about a million miles we needed something new from the inside out and that’s when we gave up on hope this whole situation turned out to be some kind of fucked up joke with no punchline there is no correct answer, there is no clever solution so now we’re plotting a course and cutting no corners gave up on hope I discovered getting out cutting no corners
I see thru you until there’s no room and you run circles around the others until I’m desperate disappear too much time on my hands to forget to think resurrect had a notion to keep on time and deliver a quality line let’s forget keep your conscience clear the look on your face you were replaced what I wouldn’t give for another week I couldn’t change cuz I’m not awake but if this isn’t working, it’s probably obvious I got sick and tired of searching for something beyond our understanding if something’s wrong, don’t lie to me I see right thru you
we have to remember to feel so blessed we have to struggle to get out of the depths we’ve been so lucky for so long a catalogue of a hundred songs I wrote it all with the same pen threw it away just to start again and not like we wanted a monument not like we needed a reception returning favors a hundred fold all these people trying to ‘act their age’ there’s a skyfire in the starcage everybody thinks they’re all the rage I got someplace else to be
The Creeper 05:28
I’m determined to pick up where you left off I’ve got a feeling that we have a disease in common I simply wanted a chance to address the problem there was a moment and then a disconnection
