I thought that i knew best but I'm selfish and petty like all the rest. I know how this ends and i will fall for it over and over again.
I don't want to be the thief on the cross. Joining in with all of those who mocked the one nailed to the tree. You were hung up there because of me.
I am a flickering flame constantly praying you don't send rain. I hate to take the blame but you know ho much i love my chains.
(How long will you live? How long will you live like this?)
I need a drug. I'm feeling stuck. I am the dirt that held your cross in place.
Are you tied to your bed by all your trials and tests?
Consumed by what you cant digest?
Stitching the holes in your nets?
I'm scared i won't be ready. I know it comes like a thief and i'm afraid i'll sleep through the night.
Everything I love about midwest emo is present here, twinkly riffs, dancey rhythms, heartfelt lyrics, shouty vocals, this is just a really, really solid album. Got to see it played in it's entirety in a basement and it was one of the better shows I've been too in a long while Dylan Kivinen
