Featuring Nathan from Microwave

lyrics

How dare they be so welcoming?
Swinging kids from the ceiling.
How dare they be so welcoming?
Swinging kids from the ceiling.

You play guitar and that’s what defines you.
So-and-so creates an event and they invited you.
Thirty black shirts in a room.
Same basic three hair cuts.

Break my back if it will prove something.
I need facts to enjoy my life.
Who’s going to the show tonight?
I think I already know.
What did I pass up just to sweat with you?
And then cry on the drive home.
Alone, Alone.
In a fifties sounding tone.

Wallet’s empty. Slam me down.
Blank stare parents. Slam me down.
Missed your birthday. Slam me down.
But it’s worth it so slam me down.

Laying in the back of the van with a dead phone and a sunburn.
Collectively selecting me.
I am one with the adventure.

Chill out.
Breathe in.
You’re far from your ceiling.
Chill out.
Breathe in.
You’re far from your ceiling.
Chill out.
Breathe in.
You’re far from your ceiling.
Chill out.
Breathe in.
Your good, man.

Knife in my side.
Slowly take it out.
One’s a mother fucker.
Two’s a crowd.
The pro’s and the con’s of singing along.
Magnifying glass to a good time.

Sleep in the corner of your eye.
Play the songs that I wrote.
Make your boys laugh and make a joke.
Soon you will all see my ghost.
I already melted my skin.
Swapped blood with the Christmas lights.
They sat near the electrical box and smoked me away all night.
