Another Song About Never Going Home
We follow the tracks in the snow,
Past drained out forties and discarded clothes.
Tried to step in you prints but my boots didn't fit,
Sometimes I still pretend that I know how to swim.
And from a rusted steel cage, under twisting concrete,
Montreal depaneurs and water soaking my feet,
On a busted freight train never made it back home,
No fucking train ever got me home.
A Song For Sad Friends
I saw the dust clouds in your eyes,
While we stood on pillars ten feet high.
And I watched the flesh fall off your knife,
While you fly the storm just like a kite.
But these days you just ebb and sway,
Like our old city filled with cranes.
And I held you up above the sky,
So you could tell me what it was like,
With my hands in your hands, we're just cold hands in mittens,
You're freight trains and freeways and I'm burnt out ignition.
Our whisky and coffee and late night offerings,
These stencils and craft glue won't see us through.
Nothing but closed doors I drink my way through,
Counting regrets in empty cans and cigarettes,
With passion of a powder keg, and manipulative segues,
You sold your dreams for abusive extremes.
Some Things We Best Forget
I've started to erase this last year.
Replacing everything I came to fear.
But my head's still trapped inside your sheets.
More and more I think that I killed me.
Growing up under florescent hallways,
Brother lied under hospital tray,
Now I call this place my second home,
Some fears die - others grow.
This Ship Will Never Sink
Blood loss has been bringing me down,
And I can't go home after I burnt it all down.
Swimming all day, and into the summer,
You said it'd be better off if I just drown,
I haven't been home in such a long time,
Woke up today, realized I was already there.
Growing up so distant to reality,
Did it ever give a fuck about me,
To Myspace, Mississippi, And One Less Fear!
I listened to your album on repeat last night,
Just like yesterday after that silly fight,
And it's weird how connected I feel to you sometimes,
Even though I barely know you, well I wish that I did!
And I want to write you a letter, say promise me some day,
We'll meet each other outside of Myspace,
And in person we'll laugh and be silly or cry,
Or drink, if that's what you think!
