lyrics

Crows cry outside, panic fills my chest. Truth I'm terrified of any omen or a message of death. My plan? Wring their necks with bare hands and hope they never do come back.

It’s best to stay inside here, effluvia fills the sky. Apostles become politicians and nothing turns out right. You don’t wanna live forever and see your loved ones die. It’s okay to hate your life, you know we all do sometimes. Empty head, a full heart, crooked fingers will trace
random shapes on your back and wipe tears from off your face. Because if we gotta stay I want you to feel okay.

I want to be your cigarette and weed whore, a motherfucking prince
of none. I want to be your dimestore Mona Lisa, and maybe once in a great while my self-amusing smile can be your light in a dimly lit room.

Is this a hopeless endeavor? You’ll never shake that plight. A valiant effort though we all know we can never win this fight. I just wanna make you happy, at least just for tonight. It’s okay to hate your life, you know we all
do sometimes. Go ahead, rip apart this whole god damn state. Burn it all to the ground and wipe smiles from off their face. Because if we gotta stay I want them to feel the same. I want
to beat your enemies and keep score, each and every single one. I want to be your dimes-tore Mona Lisa, and maybe once in a great while my self-amusing smile can be your light in a dimly lit room. My plan? Wring their necks with my bare hands and hope they
never do come back. They can come knock down our doors. We’re shedding who we were before. Wave goodbye only to find they're not even mad. Your old selves looking back. Your
fears, they're not tough shit anymore.
