LYRICS

TIME

Take my backbone
Find another skill to hone
You can see through every hole in my lines

I want to be that boulder
Sit completely still
To your ears you’d swear that I was hurt

Sit still sister
Let a seed lay roots
Where I can see you in every hole in your time

You can see through mountains
From coast to coast
To your eyes you’d swear that they are close

I keep doing this for show
You won’t see me blink
I’ll say you should have known

Now I’ve finally slept
Now that I’m finally home
Where I can sit in every hole in my time

I keep doing this for show
You won’t see me blink
I’ll say you should have known

Now I’ve finally slept
Now that I’m finally home
Where I can see you in every hole in my time

 

BOTH OF OUR VIEWS

Felt my tailspin subside with the moon
Then I laid down facing up, wait for the truth

Saw the hair split down both of our views
Commandeering all of the air left in the room

All the weight, all the weight
Of all the weight

I was standing in all the wrong groups
Sharply folding onto a desk in a strange guest room

Half imaged the state of the mood
Reinventing inspiring quotes, a calm down ruse

While the meaning takes a seat
The words keep shifting out of sequence

 

HALLWAY

Surfer socks on a snowy day
Double digits slipping away
Finally you sit across from my hallway

You’ve got the moves, you’ve got the moves sit back
You’ve got the moves you might be fine
You’ve got the moves, you’ve got the moves sit back
You’ve got the moves we might be fine

Everywhere you go
That’s the way you see me

Nihilistic with a work ethic
Waiting and willing to take any hit
I keep running up and down the same hallway

Everywhere I go
That’s the way I see you

 

ROOM I LEFT

Blurry subtleties, connected imageries
Driving to pass the time and wishing you could comfort me

Blindly confident, ignoring failed attempts
The stakes are obvious but really who has time to vent?

The room I’m in, the room I left

I’ve finally been shown
A short-handed list of what I miss when I’m gone
An even shorter list of who I’ve come to know

Come back feel the present tense
We can make a ritual in vain

 

LOW

In the cityscape, where the cold awaits
In the cityscape, I can breathe
You can find another low in the city West of where you’re from
You can find another low in this city

I’ll follow where you’ve gone
I’ll follow what you know
I’ll follow where you’ve gone

Standing in a room, where a face means everything
Standing with a face with no name
Self aware in a fog, a white knuckle grip on it all
A blank stare, but nothing yet for your time here

I’ll follow where you’ve gone
I’ll follow what you know
I’ll follow where you’ve gone

 

RITUALS

The less we sit and don’t hurry back
We could find a love
The less we scream and our minds detach
The less we’ll stand here feeling guilty
Look from another side
Take a second to analyze
A weight that hides behind both our backs
Silent and skeptical

It could matter this time
I don’t know you like you think
It could matter this time

Fell asleep every time you recall the past
Now I’m circling
From the left, to the right, and underneath
Now we’re taking steps backwards
Not taking a break
I should stay at this pace
The reference clear as you stumble in
Silent and skeptical

It could matter this time
I don’t know you like you think
It could matter this time

Waking up in a bed that I traveled to
Now I’m spiraling
Checking off every one of my rituals
Same lines meet, where’s the difference?
Feeling at home
Because I’m sitting at home
Repeated lines that I wrote and you came back
Silent and skeptical

It could matter this time
I don’t know you like you think
It could matter this time
