You're bumming the kids out
With your screaming take it outside
Recycling rope from all the noose's I've tied
I've emptied my stomach but I still feel sick
And I swear I didn't drink
I'm driving with the windows down taking photos of accidents while I speed…
This is who I am
Burning the ants with a magnifying glass
Just pretending to jolt in the bed you laid
While I'm waiting in line and I'm pretending to care
To catch a small glimpse of the mess you've made
I'll be thrown from the boat with a bet to let go
Sleeping alone with the cards you've played
I'll be signing a line with a pain hidden plan
From all the years that I'm surprised you stayed well
Crawl our way out
I'll be searching for the enemy
We'll find our way back
A lesson taught but a memory taken

Lightspeed Down
We hear the sound
Pounding the air of restlessness
Our bodies finally hit the ground
Lightspeed Down
We hear the sound
Slipping across the interstate
And ending up in these boring towns

Burning the ants with a magnifying glass
Just pretending to jolt in the bed you laid
While I'm waiting in line
And I'm pretending to give a shit
About the fucking mess you've made
I'll be thrown from the boat with a bet to let go
Sleeping alone with the cards you've played
I'll be signing a line with a pain hidden plan
From all the years that I'm surprised you stayed well
Crawl our way out
I'll be searching for the enemy
We'll find our way back
A lesson taught but a memory taken

Just a matter of time before my truth runs out
I'll be cutting in line because I want it all
When there's someone like you
It only builds up doubt
The irrepressible urges to pick up and call
I'd be loathing alone
If you could just back down
Never threw in the towel because I want it all
If I knew you were close you know I'd sink this town
But I'm only a camera while you take your fall
