there’s other countries in the world I know there must be some but this state’s blocked them all out cold start out so good then you recline there’s been talk of getting out of here but change is not the same of hope or words of quitting, getting on with things you can’t quit nothing we shed the old scales to be sure they don’t weigh anything like what you’re worth and if you’re pure had it so good, into a decline heard you doubt the value of the shore you know you might be getting near words of quitting, getting on with things you can’t quit nothing When I like awake at night i race the light I race the light I race how I hope to fold my sight to fold my sight to fold

put your nature in the dirty turn pull it out you found that you’ve gone bad like stones we dream to only stay asleep there’s no forgetting put your hair down, put your hair down it’s time to find out who you really are too careful in the light of permanence there’s only seconds and though you say we go too far it’s not enough to know your name around the hedges you hide so hard it’s not enough to know your name not enough to know your name wouldn’t ask, it couldn’t be explained reasons and resistance are a lie how the functions added up to shame when no one’s looking put your hair down, put your hair down it’s time to find out who you really are too careful killed the meaning that you meant when there’s no time left and though you say we go too far it’s not enough to know your name around the hedges you hide so hard it’s not enough to know your name not enough to know your name

I’m telling secrets about the advantages of unawareness I hope embarrassments fade from the eyes of the ones that are sea less

I thought you wouldn’t mind we turned our amps up high I thought you were sleeping anyway when you see the signs have turned into lines you’ll already have gone away it’s been on my mind for a long long long time how could you be sleeping all these days

Measure 5 03:45
the clearing is to the brightness as the nearing is to far, too far we both stand up swallowed by these fast trees running beside us we couldn’t leave the ground we’ll clear the rocks up from the road i’ll tell you what you want to know we’re holing back of the payload watch the wind growing as the sky stays still and we both look down out onto these tall trees running beside us where we’ll lie we’ll lie we’ll clear the rocks up form the road I’ll tell you what you want to know we’ll clear the rocks up from the road I’ll tell you what you want to know we bottomed out on the soft shoulder remember the lines that you told her but also there’s lot of other ways that aren’t in that whole realm – I mean there’s so many ways but I don’t know… Yeah I think I’m capable but I think I’m a lazy asshole – m. garito
