lyrics

Hold your head up
The light is fading
And all the heat is rising
Can you feel it coming?

When the city hauls its bones
Into the night’s shadows
And dark mingles with heat
Like old friends telling old stories
Watching the sweat on my skin
Beading slow, a fault in this machine

Well it could be the 40 ounce I downed
But it feels like now is being played out by someone else
Shooting blanks into a barrel
Throwing dice across the table
There’re gold rings on your fingers
And serpents in your eyes

I recommend you spend an evening
Just pretending to be watering
All the fake plants in the building
While you’re waiting for that that something
That’s too late, it’s far too late
We’ve faked all there is to fake
With pointed tooth and painted faith
We’ve built cathedrals out of paper planes

Hold your hands up
Can you see the days delineate?
Lines for the times
You’ve succeeded and failed
If the devil drinks alone I’ll be drinking for one
Watching the sweat on my skin
Beading slow, a fault in this machine

Well it could be the 40 ounce I downed
But it feels like now is being played out by someone else
Treading water at the border
Of sleep and disorder
There’s glass all in your fingers
And blood all down your thighs

I recommend you spend an evening
Just pretending to be watering
All the fake plants in the building
While you’re waiting for that something
That’s too late, it’s far too late
We’ve faked all there is to fake
With pointed tooth and painted faith
Just line up and buy a ticket for that train
