lyrics

Candle wax dripping on my hand.
I'm burning for you.
Concrete kissed my salty skin.
Outside of the zoo.
Childhood best friend, what beautiful wings you have!
Do they flap when you get excited?
Don't get me excited.
I visit your grave on days when it rains.
Cause in my brain that's where your face remains.
No positive memories.
What thing took you from me.
Left me drenched in defeat. Picking cigarettes off of the street.
Mirror we meet again. Got a head like Stonehenge.
Where did those flowers go? Why haven't we spoken?
Hey where were you when I needed you.
Selfishly sitting in a crowded room.
Thinking it's a sheltered tomb.
Acting like I'm fresh out the womb.
Loving Keegan, I'll see you soon.
You're a weak man.
You lost your spirit, you lost a friend.
You lost a lifer who would have loved you 'til the end.
No positive memories.
What thing took you from me.
Left me drenched in defeat. Picking cigarettes off of the street.
Mirror we meet again. Got a head like Stonehenge.
Where did those flowers go?
Don't wanna let down my parents so I slide on my boots.
Is everyone's struggle apparent? Can you relate to my blues?
Losing someone who believed you.
Who believed what you saw.
Through the drugs and the glory days of God. I was with you through it all.
