lyrics

These days they pass like kidney stones
said a wiser man than me
To this I just laughed As I scrolled through my phone
To pretend like I was comforting
Your boredom is based in the places you've been
And the taste of the wind in your lungs
Stop and see you are
More than the waste of the days that you grin
Always chased by the sin you run from

What if somebody told you
That things would be fine as a violin bow
It seems like you're falling off
Well maybe just smile and let go

You see despair is a clarity the rich can't afford
Life's a bitch when ignored by your friends
You're prepared to be narrowly fit to be more
For the big heart award at the end
You feel backwards and bashful a babble of terms
You unravel each worm like a flower in bloom
I'm a coward who croons every hour past noon
Locked in towers consumed by the earth

What if somebody told you
That things would be fine as a violin bow
It seems like you're falling off
Well maybe just smile and let go

What do you think?
You think you're a god?
You are no god
A man in the sink
And a child in a tub
An infant in love
An imprint from drugs
Consumed
Your tongue tying tunes

Days they pass like kidney stones
And no one denies that it's true
So we all will laugh while we scroll through our phones
And pretend that we know what to do

I was going to say I love you
Hope that makes you feel much better
