Give up and walk away These words recite in my head on the journey home I passed out in your yard next to the lamp post I Made time to waste time every day with you Growing calloused from all the shit that we’ve been through Made time for you, I made time Made time to let it all just fall away Give up on you, I give up Give up on everything I want to say I would walk away If I could focus I would stand up straight Against my judgement Find a better place To lay my head down See another day I win I wound up all alone You called me all night I took the long way home And drove the car off the road Pack up and walk away There’s nothing left to say I found a better way She said, she said Learn from my past mistakes Think back to yesterday Pack up and walk away She said, she said Fall asleep I’ll make sure you’re sleepless There’s no peace until you’re in pieces I would walk away If I could focus I would stand up straight Against my judgement Find a better place To lay my head down See another day I win I can’t win

I fit my dreams in this pipe and I smoked them My goals were all stems and a taste that I hated Flat on my back just trying to keep it all together But the whites in our eyes say that we’ll float here forever There’s no place that I would rather be than right here you and I together We’ll burn out, no after glow We’re gone now It’s better than to fade out slow We messed it up, but that’s alright We’ll burn the spoon talking through the dead of night You’re half a world, a ways away Say what you were going to say Kill my brain cells with you All night and we don’t have to talk about it Black eyes, baby blue’s what I see There’s time to live our rock and roll fantasy Got this head full of confidence, but I’ve never felt stranger What a waste of a useful limb, it happens sooner than later What’s wrong, you said that you don’t know Strung out, don’t want to talk about it What’s wrong, you said that you don’t know Flatline, nothing to talk about Where did the sun go I fit my dreams in this pipe and I smoked them My goals were all stems and a taste that I hated Flat on my back just trying to keep it all together But the whites in our eyes insist we won’t get better

I wish I was the sun in your eyes The blind spot in your mirrors that creeps behind you late at night Come down from the high that you’re on And wake up to the burning box I left on your front lawn You don’t know what I’m capable of Take time, you know you’re fucking up Crossed lines you know we’ve all had enough Don’t try and make amends and glue this back together Most people bend or they break You’re not that ordinary I’ll stick this knife in your face You’re lightning in a bottle This scene is moving to slow Your lack in commentary I’ll make sure that you know That you’ll be dead and buried Inhale, the smoke will make you strong I’ll weave your eulogy into this song I hate what you’ve become the most Crushed pills be sure that you double the dose Take time, you know you’re fucking up Crossed lines you know we’ve all had enough Make note, beware the sleeping eye Catch up, you know you’re running out of time I’d love to see how you fall disemboweled with your head run through the wall I’d love to see how you fall Plummeting from your 10 foot pedestal I’d love to see how you shake As every bone in your body starts to break

It’s hard to talk about the voice you hear in your head Sometimes it won’t go away It’s hard to think about all the people that left When there’s things left to say Built up, and here’s the break down again There isn’t freedom from fear Stayed up all night pacing the hall Just wishing you’d disappear There isn’t reason this time Try not to think about it at all Nothing ever feels right Apathetic while the worlds falling down Just medicate it, you’ll be ok It’s copacetic to find bliss in this state Try and forget that you’re not the same Coming out of a fog just to realize you’ve done this all wrong A visit from a friend, but you’re strapped to your brain and you can’t let him in Your bones are like the sun and the sky They’re just shelter to hind behind It’s existential to make sense of it all To make a difference when you’re so small There’s not a cure for me…. Altered state Medicate Waste away Living on this modern planet

I smashed a bug with my hand once before I smeared it’s blood and it’s guts on the floor It made me feel weird and I started to cry And in this moment I knew what it meant to die And I don’t ever want to die alone But then again I don’t wanna die by… And I don’t ever want to die alone But then again I don’t want to die by your side Waste time, coexisting in black and white I just assume that we all die alone I guess it turns out we’re just flesh and bone But then again I don’t want to die by I guess in time we’ll find our own way home But then again I, but then again I

about

Songs about the anger that comes with failed relationships, exploration of the mind and self, lifelong angst, living with the side effects of prescribed medication for mental illness, and the understanding of your own mortality.
