lyrics

I'll miss you as much as you allow me to. You walk around, like theres something to prove. Let the bird fly but it's wings are clipped, to ensure that you never slip

Put down your guard, I mean no harm. I Learned once before. You only play D. and thats okay. but the crescent wanes, and when the stars show, they belong to me.

I'll miss you as much as you allow me to. You walk around, like theres something to prove. Let the bird fly,it's wings are clipped, to ensure that you could never slip.

Stick the knife in, twist it, and pull it out. emasculate as I bleed from my mouth. But I still wish you the best at the end of the day, despite how you force me to say that. I will not try anymore but I will always keep an open door. My old friends say that you've got them hooked.(I'll always keep an open door) Cause you're a sucker for a fucker who's passed out on the floor (Cause you're a sucker for a fucker who's passed out on the floor)

Yeah you're a sucker for a fucker who's passed out on the floor. So you do you, and I'll do me. I Just hope the choices you make make you happy
(Yeah you're a sucker for a fucker who's passed out on the floor.)


They say it starts with an ending but it also ends with an ending. So how am I supposed to know the difference? When am I supposed to be hopeful for a new bloom and hopeless for the immanent and ultimate? it's all bullshit. I was thinking of cutting my hair and shaving my face. I think we've all yearned to revel in some sort of physical embodiment of some sort of new life cycle. To sever the ties of who we once were and who we want to be. You cut your hair too. The weight was holding you back from all of those important things of which you lost track of somewhere between your initial departure from the things that used to keep you up at night and your discovery of another way to lose sleep. But we've all got our own ways to lose sleep. Our personal parasites to creep around that have seeked and bound to that particular glitch in your system, the one you hoped to destroy and wish to no longer listen they keep it around. But then again, we all have our own ways to lose sleep anyway

And with the absent moon
And the setting sun
(and with the rising sun)
Everything is done
I Can be new again
(I am new again)
