lyrics

the sun came up without protest
but, oh star, i digress
for i’m an exhausted temptress
bff’s with my mattress

waves roll in, waves roll out
and i’m swimmin - no i’m drownin in a sea of doubt
yeah i’m just fine getting by
apathy preached to kill the time

and yet you try - try to convey
no change just stasis
lost in old painful places
just can’t encase it can’t erase it
everyday just one way
never been so okay

find what you love
cripple it never let it get away
keep it in a mason jar in the basement
vehicles aren’t great placement when you’re
writing party invitations
hiding criminal traces

find what you love
so dull preferably faceless
locked away behind cracked glass cases
memories of what fear replaces

don’t quit, don’t waste this

the rousing pulse, the beating heart
oh how it stops, oh how it starts
and every little thing
to hope and love must cling

the lungs corrode, the breathing stops
sticky sweet like soda pop
comes running out of you
what have i done to you

i took his teeth, took them for me
i stole the sun up from the sky
i stole the love, up from the earth
i ate it whole for all that’s worth

i plucked her womb from certain doom
i stood alone in a waiting room, hating you
but the at the same time needing to
forgive you
for what you put me through

find what you love
savor it never let it get away
keep it in a place in your heart, don’t replace it
prefer to use something tasteless, baseless
just to avoid speculations
hiding criminal traces

find what you are
so bold hiding all of your faces
locked away behind cracked glass cases
memories of what fear replaces

give up, embrace it
