The meadows don’t speak (you had this)
The medals don’t break (Sitting in Mavis’ garden)
My death’s on
Mondays (pirouette into nothing)
Going down south (pirouette into a dream)
You had this

So what do I do now
Sleepless in the night
The fears will write themselves
Don’t up a fight

An unattractive kid
Perfect in his dreams
The tears come down so far
Turn into a stream

The tears will write themselves
There was a chance there was a start
The fears come out themselves
For someone who could fall apart

I’d say I’d take you out
I’d say something, that freaks me out
But for everything you lack
Is there something you’d take back?

The simple message looms
The city’s set to crumble too
It’s hard to understand
It’s hard to wake up full of youth

Don’t try to right the wrongs
Don’t try to figure it all out
Because what can you do?
What is there you can prove?

They’re getting drunk again
They’re getting drunk, I just want sleep
The timing’s perfect now
Depression hits me all too deep

So cut your contacts off
Forget your friends, forget yourself
Cause just what can you save now?
Cause just what do you know how?

He showed up after me
I guess I’ll go home anyway
It’s all the same to me
I’m trying hard to fit in scenes

They left for Baltimore
They left for drinks and never came back
But for once can someone call
Just for once can someone stall
