lyrics

All I ever wanted was to find some peace in something in which we didn’t have to compete
You could try but it’s never good enough, the only prize for you to win is rejected love
So bang up, and fall out, nervous lust among a clash of muted shouts
Maybe tomorrow but it couldn’t be today, maybe tomorrow but it shouldn’t be today
Maybe forever but it wouldn’t be a day, maybe the world but you know that it’d never stay
And all it really needs, a fucking new disease, a spark atop a bath of Styrofoam and gasoline

All I ever wanted was to find a place in which to bring on better days
All I ever wanted was right in my face, all you ever had to do was just fucking wait
It’s backed up and spun out, how ridiculous it sways yet it takes a crowd
We see the beauty in the colors as they fade away, yet think there’s beauty in the darkness as it takes the stage
We see the beauty in the sky as we fade away, we steal the beauty from our lives as we fade to grey
All I ever had to do was find a working line, all I ever had to learn was how to fail right

All we ever wanted was to find a way in which to put our pain on display
All we ever wanted was to find some fame, give me fifteen and now it’s assuaged
So buy in, or trip out, with what you’re learning how to tie why not make a sound?
It’s only winning if you’re done before the timer rings, its only winning if you steal a fucking tragedy
It’s only winning once it’s past the point of pandering we must be sinning since we’d rather do it differently
All you ever had to do was get it fucking right; I should have known that this would never work a seventh time
