lyrics

We’re only four chords on and yes, I’ve found my panic again
My lungs just burst and my blood feels like it’s about to eject
It’s fucking pointless and I’ll say it now “I’m sorry my friends”
I can’t describe the static, scrambling holes that fall from my head

And to be clear it’s nothing more than just a thought that failed to reach
And I doubt it’ll ever fucking stop
Count down the words that never seem to make from my head to say…

So now we’re farther gone it’s time to brave these pages again
To save to silence for the chaos from my arm to my death
Gone is the process for the safety of the hate to be had
What’s left is solace in the fact that it’s now out of my hands

And to be clear it’s nothing more than just a thought that failed to reach
And I doubt it’ll ever fucking stop
Count down the words that never seem to make it from my head to say…

Let’s look away from everything you’ve learned in this circumstance
And try to pry your vapid eyes away from such distractions
The only lesson left to learn is how to earn your regret
I warned you once that this was pointless and would never make sense

And to be clear it’s nothing more than just a thought that failed to reach
And I doubt it’ll ever fucking stop
Count down the words that never seem to make it from my head to say… what?
