lyrics

I crumbled up mountains of paper
Stacks of old metaphors and cliche lines
14 nights,
13 days of useless masonry

I figured I'd step away for awhile
Rest a torch on a caffeine deficiency
See the miss behind the counter
Kept my blood pumping for hours
As I fight
This war inside my head

When I felt the slam of the door

I couldn't help but think of dinosaurs
As my shaking hands shot rings through my coffee

Faced with lyrical extinction
wells gone, lost its vision
Let's hope they admire these bones for years

When I finally heard your voice

And caught a glimpse
Of something vibrant and still

Oh girl you hold a fashion
Makes me weak at the knees
And a body I would love too
Learn

Dear operator please
Find the words to tell her
Before she tries to tells me off

STOP!

I know where just savages
Faulty gears in a machine
Designed to rust and wear out

You eat fuck and sleep
You live by your teeth &

Now I find it hard to breath
Question every little thing
Maybe we could just
Sit and talk awhile

Hell oh, darling hell oh
How do you do?
My thoughts and lungs turn melody to speech
But any harmony smashed against my teeth

Hell oh, darling how low
I'm a fool

I've always had such awful timing
I've always had such a a awful t imi ng

At the end of this demonstration
I braced myself for impact
Fearing the worst in verbal artillery

But in this darkest of hours
She carried nothing but a smile

Looked towards the horizon boys
The sun is coming up!!



Damn girl you're everything
Your all that I've wanted
Damn girl you're everything
I'd ever need

So I sharpen up this wicked tongue &
Move in for the kill
Straighten my posture

Intellect, and finest style
My diction speaks chills
As your body just screams

Dear I'm just lonely
Anxiety ridden
These hands don't stop shaking

LIAR!!
THIS ISN'T YOU!!

Dear operator
Find the words to tell her
Before she tries to tell me
Dear operator
Please

STOP!!

I've been losing so much sleep
Cause I've gone mad sinking deep
In the depths of my mind
I'm afraid of my mind

I Know This Won't Mean A Thing!!
