The Sun Was The Moon

lyrics

It felt like forever in your room
We'd play pretend till the Sun was the Moon
The water was warm; it was turning you blue
And when i'd had my fill, you were singing the news:
You don't value heavy machinery
You're in love with some high school scenery shit
Everyone I know is afraid to be dead
You stick to your ink, cause it's all in your head

It's so much easier singing someone else's words
Lay your feelings out in a Quiet Room where they can't be seen or heard
Take your pictures down
You blend into the walls

Shock and awe
Anxious and vain
You paint by the numbers
It's all insane
Kiss the skin before it breaks
Your pine-forest mind
It's all the same

It was bound to begin, it was sure to be May
Arbitrary, en vogue, you submit to the change
Not a moment too soon, or a season too late
You're becoming the man that you wish you could hate
Cleanse the psyche with thunder and lightning
Play your songs so I can sleep in sound
Put your hand to the pen and wave your flag
Love your love in remembrance of all that you've had

It's so much easier singing someone else's words
Lay your feelings out in a Quiet Room where you can't be seen or heard
There's a line on hold
But no one ever calls

Shock and awe
Anxious and vain
You paint by the numbers
It's all insane
Kiss the skin before it breaks
Your pine-forest mind
It's all the same

Lament for the end
Sweet nocturne pouring fourth from your cellar door
There are years and years you never meant to never see
I'm crippled and bored by your passive-aggressive beliefs

Now that the Michigan Spring's come to pass
Did you get you want, did it make you a man?
The radio shifts and plays back the mass
All electrical impulses fading to black
I tried to be patient and temper the seas
Lighting a flame to the sycamore tree
Burning, becoming; the Phoenix is free
I wish I was ready to love me for me

Hem the seams on our clothes
Pick the rose, you might get thorns
