Song Lyrics

Self-Titled EP

Safe And Sorry

18 the right time the wrong place
19 you work hard to save face
Yeah when 20 hit it never stopped
Last chord I played for
You won't say that I'll stay

Don't get right
I'm against it
I'm sold out
I'll parade it

Fact based you won't feel the same way
Kill time to make life alone take
Yeah when 30 hits I'll never stop
First line I played for you can't say
I won't cave

Don't get right
I'm against it
I'm sold out
I'll parade it

When you fall from top
I'll contain myself
Since your bright eyes called and pulled me in
I'm the same boy now

Back then I folded without shame
An old line remembered without names
Yeah It'll never hit so run along
Right now my full heart is empty
Don't we care

Don't get right
I'm against it
I'm sold out
I'll parade it

When you fall from top
I'll contain myself
Since your bright eyes called and pulled me in
I'm the same boy now

Bolt down failed sound
And rest on your now
Anchored at lost found
Suppose you were safe
And sorry

Right to get your life out of the red now
Right to make it not to make it up now
Right to step along and take it in now
Right to fall in line the answer is now
I know I won't

Exercise Your Futility

Forget crawling for distance
I've slowly grown
Tired of inspiration
Trying to catch my breath all alone
Dramatic diseases
Have frozen my lungs
For my children to read
In silence

Painted my muses black
To compensate I'm cutting off
All communication
Taping mouths shut and asking them
Personal questions

Scream with affirmative
You know who you are
Sign if a motivation
That hits the muscle would cause you alarm
Sold by the brick emotion
Would crush all the bone
Our shouts leaving our bodies
Stiff on its own

Painted my muses black
To compensate I'm cutting off
All communication
Taping mouths shut and asking them

Ain't I
Misshapen and soiled
Meager, I point the light at you
Instead of silence
Disconnecting yourself is how I misconstrue
Everything

Cold stare and forgo the distance
That made it a game
Locked in ceremonious dances
Of polemic discourse
You cancelled your credit
Sold all you lies
Deep in that shadow

Painted my muses black
To compensate I'm cutting off
All communication
Taping my mouth shut and asking them
Personal questions

Red and fallow
I'll appoint it
When it ices
I'll approve it
We can't get on
I don't belong
We can't get on
I don't belong

DOMESTIC ANIMALS

Picked up the telephone and saw your name
I don't expect to say
Anything you wanted
Anything that's sane
Falling through the same
Painful but too late to save

This won't hurt if I don't perceive what I don't believe
Get so focused on separate sides guess I'll step away

Just tell her otherwise you molded frame
Will not have cause, sleep again
Impose a test
Set right the stage
Calling you would be hours
Falling through could be ours
Painful, but too late to save

Those helpful listeners that called me out
Soul with plan to sing
How fundamental it sets me off
Was it you that left
Was it mine to take
Painful
Too late to save

RECONCILE AWAKE

Into my sullen eyes
She watched
I steal away
Pale in tone she slowly falls
Every night
Made it hard to reconcile awake

In dreams I color mountains
Alive waiting for the feel of rain
To recall is sentimental
Reasons
Every night she falls and slips away
To tell in now reminds me of that day
It's supposed to

On an open door says
Enter as I left there feeling
No expectations
She'd be waiting for my return

Cast through the window
That which you have doubt
In so long
As we belong to ourselves until
Emptiness
Fed up with us starts up again
These callused hands can open up raw and
Feel again
Most of us love but never find out
Said alone
Won't help you underestimate
Her as you walk out I forgot all

I don't want you
Just for the right to
I don't feel anyone could understand
Time is detrimental

Reasons
Every night she falls and slips away
To tell it now reminds me of that day
It's supposed to

Lift up your frozen
Eyelids
Appearance is everything
Motionless with a sordid smile
So wash your face and

PERFECT TARGET

Meet up on north side
West of the common line
See up the right skirt
Your wallet will make it right

I want to get a moment of pleasure out of
The fact that I'm in the middle of it
Come off with your policy of economics
Collect your loss but I'm selling buy it

Anywhere
Could be there
I'd be leaving
But I love

Craning my neck high
To witness other sails
Too wet to make gains
Too dry to leap again

How long 'til we can assassinate the sun?
And live under the moon staring at it
The stars taking pictures as we rest our legs
And plan a trip
You look sentimental

How awful that this makes me sick
Can't compose
Say I would try and get this fixed
Instead

Diet of soft words
Spoken with sharp tongues
Crumbled with culture
Only demography

I want to get a moment of pleasure out of
The fact that I'm in the middle of it
Come off with your policy of economics
Collect your loss but I'm selling buy it

This is a celebration
This is a celebration
If all else fails
If all else fails

How awful that this makes me sick
Can't compose
Say I would try and get this fixed
Instead

And the cranes that lift
Doing battle with
Iconography
This city's own
