Ryan Cassata – Check Engine lyrics

The sun goes round
The ship sinks down
Oh down down down down down down down
The bird can’t fly
He’s bound to die
In time time time time time time time

Check Engine light came on hours ago
Man this shit is so powerful
Big tension, I’m still headed that direction
No self love, no affection, just to wreck ship

I got weak-willed bones
And I’m sinking deep into a sink hole of clothes
I’m looking at my photograph on the shelf
And starting not to even recognized myself
My car’s gonna be so broke down
For the pint that I just gulped down
I don’t need a coke and I don’t need a roller
Just to be lifted like I’m on a rollercoaster
Man, might as well put me in the toaster
Burnt up bread like the holy ghost roasted
Check no, for religion while I’m tripping
I need Sunday school but I just keep skipping

Man I’m burning to ashes
I’m getting to angry just to stay passive
I’m thinking about leaving but I need another drink
Or I’mma keep on heaving there’s no way to get past this

The sun goes round
The ship sinks down
Oh down down down down down down down
The bird can’t fly
He’s bound to die
In time time time time time time time

Oh yeah, I was just fucking around
I’m too young, I’m much too young to drown
While I’m passed out and the ground just caved in
Face pressed down on stone cold pavement
That’s some dedication to the bottle
It’s fun medicine but it’s getting hard to swallow
My drinking friend, oh he thinks that I’m faking it
But now I’m sick and he’s still vacant
I’m getting to worn out to be racing
To the liquor store when there’s nothing left to pour
Now I’m tracing, my mistakes need erasing
So I could be awakened and make it
Time spent drunk is time spent wasted
Time spent high is time that’s jaded
Let’s face I’m breaking, I don’t want to be faded
And I’m close to being taken up

The sun goes round
The ship sinks down
Oh down down down down down down down
The bird can’t fly
He’s bound to die
In time time time time time time time

90 pounds and I’m shrieking
My friends are here now and they are plain freaking
My heads all weird, I’m bleeding
They instilled some fear and now I’m tweaking,
There’s not sleeping and I’m weakened
So they got me off that,
I had the coughs for some more cough syrup
My skin was crawling up
What have I become?
A young grump crying for a bottle of rum
1 month clean, oh I think that I got this
Following these people around like they’re prophets
3 months solid, 5 months locked in
6 months, doesn’t seem like I had a problem
12 months, I’m like a rocket, no one is gonna stop this
I got a little faith and I’m on this

Check engine light 12 months ago
Man this shit is so powerful
No tension, i’m not headed that direction
I’ve got self love, I’ve got friendship

The sun goes round
The ship sinks down
Oh down down down down down down down
The bird can’t fly
He’s bound to die
In time time time time time time time

The sun goes round
The ship sinks down
Oh down down down down down down down
The bird can’t fly
He’s bound to die
In time time time time time time time
