lyrics

This one’s all shook
His eyes wanted more

Take it take it take it as a sign (A rainbow in curved air)
Time to drown in stride
He said re-act
When we mowed em down he just said (Let it run)
Time’s still allowed
To get you and me
Breathe smoke and bleed out (She)
Teach your kids all bout it
That don’t detract
Just another way to
Make it make it make it doin fine (flies)
Lookin so cut and dried
He said re-act
When they saw him down he just said
Time still abounds (blind)
Like a swarm of bees
Brace your bones all around
This

This one’s all shook out
His eyes wax and wane

Take it take it take it as a sign (Beyond the doorway)
Time to catch the last ride
Got the deck stacked
Once we called his bluff he realized
Time’s still allowed
To turn back the leaves (Lean in)
Old ghosts with no clout
Beg your lover not to doubt it
Sure to attract
S’alright, show em how to (What)
Fake it fake it not a lie
Boiled down, just a rind
Just don’t look back (you'll)
Last time he laid it down he just said
Clear out the dust from a cluttered mind
or succumb to the curse of hollow signs (find)

This one’s on the inside
Trying to burn the wide-eyed
Drinking from a fountain and
Waiting for that line to blur

The irresistible logic of science
Laid out the promise to convert coal to diamonds
And it turned the tree in bloom to a bundle of ions
Now it devastates
You instead

That’s why
I wanted something to die with
You always swore you would provide it
But it’s
You instead
Shoot em dead

Go go go… (Nail the door shut)
Wish you had something they wanted, so you look for it every day but can’t begin to find it (It is enough to leave us in)
Go go go… (here)
