Covered and washed away November through mid-May white lines and street signs that bring back memories hidden from me I'm coming to conclusions there's nothing like this in the world where the things that you love are buried for six feet and six months together are enough to tell me that there's nothing I can do to get to you There's a symmetry between the end and the beginning November through mid-May as I'm driving these streets for the last time trees mourn the loss of their leaves and I'm thinking of everything leading up to the last time you fell asleep Bare limbs shiver in the wind and the snow covered stone bearing your name is buried somewhere below I'm left with the illusion you're right by my side watching me through your breath in the cold wearing the shoes used to walk next to you soaked through the holes in the soles

Tonight I set out on a journey from behind your ears and your neck down along the sharp curves of your spine. I hear you whispering like a seashell that is trying to keep the ocean in, tucked in the sand dunes of your skin. No matter how hard that we beg, the miles take you away, and there’s nothing that we can say. You’re leaving me and I realize this, hell has an address and I’m standing on its doorstep. And later on I ignore the calls while I watch the shapes our shadows take dancing on the walls. I’m here with you, and you are here with me, and nothing can go wrong, at least until the morning comes. But I can almost see the sunlight through the window, and I can almost taste the warm tears in your eyes, so I wrap my arms around your waist and pull you close to say, “Endlessly, you belong with me.” No matter how hard that we beg, the miles take you away, and there’s nothing that we can say. You’re leaving me and I realize this, hell has an address and I’m standing on its doorstep. There’s no pain I won’t endure to keep my fingers locked in yours; no distance I won’t go. Goodbye Sky Harbor. Over, out, alone.

Hands up, this is where we unite let's give in to lust we will set this whole night on fire we were meant for this we were built for this bone white hips and paper thin you are a dream for an outcast we are the undead and this is our time... We are the desperate kids doing extraordinary things and we are just like you We never expected this standing on the sidewalk broken glass all around I tried to make my breathing stop my pulse slow down and my skin grow cold so when they found their worst fear they could finally move on they could spend the rest of their lives knowing that they were there and that they tried and there is just one thing I will ask you: who stole our hearts and who left us so hollow?

Crawl back inside my head today is nothing more than thoughts of yesterdays kiss All talk but still no words I never thought this could happen to you with teeth and style we leave them with their head full of bile I've been shutting out the world ever since I found out that life was worth as much as I could cheat Forced to cope with this uncomfortable skin bang my head against the wall your words may set me on fire but you will never belong Ex letters old betters and everything surrounding dead dreams Uncomfortable skin nowhere to go...metadone I am helpless I am lonesome I am everything you I bet you never wanted in a son and with a clean slate I'll go to sleep and never wake until the morning turns to skin and bones Here's to gloom kids we stay alive inside our heads with nowhere to go Here's to gloom kids we stay alive inside our heads until there's somewhere to go

I see the look on your face when you come home every night defeated and tired, no longer inspired the weight of the world has you pinned at the neck and I understand your position you did what you had to do and the selflessness shouldn't be confused with apathy you put all your faith in the future and that future was me but I'll never be what you want me to be don't expect too much from me you left me a world unfit to inhabit dead and dying, still I'm trying to swallow your failure it tastes so bitter fuck your generation and fuck posterity we were born to fall short so here's to you and yours a generation of never was we were born to fall short

I see my American dreams in these midnight scenes I'm overdosing on myself and I'm never coming clean do I make a mark or live forever? I won't ask myself which is better maybe I'll decide in another time I know how it rots you from the inside Wish I could love myself I wouldn't have to wait for everyone else I see my American dream in every scene I wanna be but I'm still here selling myself and trading secrets for sanctity you want sincere? look away from here This is the lungs to my life and it's the filter to my depression It's the woman that never leaves and the consequences I don't see all my flaws and my mistakes, the things that she just couldn't take she breaks But if it's only an escape, the problem will wait I'm listening, but I don't hear anything you say if this is only an escape, I know the problem will wait And I see my American dreams in every scene

I can see that you're not doing well, or so it seems You used to hold your head so high And with such pride You're too young to be this broken girl You've come too far to just let go This could be your stand You don't have to watch your world crumble Or watch it fall This could have been over by now Now you're making progress But it takes time/ To undo all the damage that's been done Building bridges on foundations of innocence To make amends to the doubtful and the cynics You can make it I swear Though I know it seems destined to fail Just carry on When the dust has settled you'll know Who was there and who let you go You've got the open sky by your side This could be your stand You don't have to watch your world crumble Or watch it fall This could have been over by now Now you're making progress But it takes time To undo all the damage that's been done Building bridges on foundations of innocence To make amends to the doubtful and the cynics
