Casiotone For The Painfully Alone – Young Shields lyrics
There's a shield around us
It's invisible & soundless
& we drink too much & fuck too soon
Smoke cigarettes in rented rooms
We quit our jobs & shoot the moon
& cut our wrists & sleep til noon

There's a shield around us
We're invincible & boundless
& we're on the run from I don't know
We're Patty Hearst & Squeaky Fromme
Asleep on subways far from home
You'd think we'd never seen a comb

Sent a letter to Mom & Dad
Mom & Dad the money's running out
Got a letter from Mom & Dad
They didn't send me anything

There's a shield around us
We are heady we are groundless
& we burn our friends & kill their names
Build insecure & petty fames
& tattoo things that we believe
Stars & skulls & hearts in half-sleeves

There's a shield around us
Tell me how is it you've found us
Cause we hide our tracks & watch the ground
Our footfalls they don't make a sound
We've cursed the names of our hometowns
We're compassless & nowhere bound

Sent a letter to Mom & Dad
Mom & Dad the money's running out
Got a letter from Mom & Dad
I swear to God they don't get me at all
