and with your mouth full of coffin nails, burning ships’ masts set to sail. on september 9th we put you in the ground. and when my voice cuts off so quick as i’m choking on my own spit. well my hands feel empty when i think of you.

so think of me as a distant ghost, think of me like i’m low and broke and i’m always wondering “why wasn’t it me?” and when i see you in my dreams smiling, sober, and set free. well i can’t help but feel my blood in my broken teeth.

and when i finally said goodbye, there were no tears left in my eyes. i must have lost them in your corpse’s stare towards god. so when i walk down our old street, i can’t but stare at my feet where your bright blue converse used to stand next to me.

so think of me as a distant ghost, think of me like i’m low and broke and i’m always wondering “why wasn’t it me?” and when i see you in my dreams smiling, sober, and set free. well i can’t help but feel my blood in my broken teeth.

at nights i can’t sleep, forever haunted by the shattered glass and the torn skin, and your 98 mazda drowning in our glacial lake. i swear sometimes i still hear your voice, frail and tired, optimistic and sweet. and when i turn around and you’re not there i feel another sentence of yours lost to memory. well i remember you, i remember your laugh and your face and the way you said we’d be alright. we’d be alright. we’ll be alright.

nothing will be alright now that you’re not alive.

This album/ band fucking rules. Listen to them.

failures // the whoopass girls

do you remember walking down your road? our stomachs were hungry, and my hands were cold, and your heart was a stone. do you remember feeling so dead? do you remember that feeling trapped inside of our heads and the places we’ve been?
and it’s sad to think about it now
but we can still be failures, we are still failures, and i hope you can forgive me.
we were just 15 years young with voices in our throats, and air in our lungs, and words on our tongues. but it seems so long ago now, past places and buildings torn down and left on the ground.
you and i? we are failures.

Well every word I write feels like one big lie.
And with every song I sing well i wish it were my last.
And lately I’ve found myself toying with the end,
And like my wisdom teeth growing in maybe I don’t fit.

And I swear I’m doing fine behind half-hearted eyes.
So kid don’t be surprised when I’m gone.
Because I haven’t spoken a word that I’ve actually meant since you’ve focused your eyes anew,
But I’m happy,
I’m happy for you.

And if time moves so fast, how will I ever catch up
And if time moves so slow, how will I ever live enough
