Bones EP

Started out so high, but we got so low While our smiles were wide, our hearts beat slow Fix this mess that I've strewn on the floor old tshirts and the clothes I don't wear anymore and the books that I've read lay behind the door Started out so high, but we got so low While or smiles were wide, our hearts beat slow. And the sobbing from the alley pulled me from my bed ran to the window, tossed the fears that I had felt the wind on my face, opened my eyes instead Called out to the darkness... it was all in my head All in my head, all in my head. Started out so high, but we got so low While our smiles were wide, our hearts beat slow And the breeze sung sweetly of summer air streetlights guarded us down there casting shadows across the tracks the sight of the trees and the smell of the grass... we can never go back we can never go back.

On the 23rd of last month, a dangerous wind set in tried to hide ourselves in the books we read but the shadow knocked and we let the shadow in... you can write all you want about this life using diction as your weapon of choice but your words won't survive without blood in your heart and marrow in the bones that frame your spine Now we're bleary eyed and confused tied to wires and tubes and screens and the accolades that are sent down the hall.. the praises keep you awake goodbye to the light when the hideout came the winds wouldn't stay away but relent to the ghost and the weight that it held when the shadow knocked and we let the shadow in you can write all you want about this life using diction as your weapon of choice but your words won't survive without blood in your heart and marrow in the bones that frame your spine you can write all you want about this life using diction as your weapon of choice but your words won't survive without blood in your heart and marrow in the bones that frame your spine

They say it can't be done in the time we have but don't lose hope, or give up now From atop the hill (what a scenic view) avert your eyes like you never knew Never wanted to be a prophet. Give it to me straight, I can handle it. Now, rest assured, the task at hand is a daunting climb towards a bare summit. From atop the hill, what a scenic view... but avert your eyes like you never knew Never wanted to be a prophet. Give it to me straight, I can handle it.

Dear friend, all the hours we have spent, bad news sinking in our hearts wearing so thin becoming permanent like the seagulls on your skin. Dear friend, I hold faith in all the cards that lay but tell me where you've gone don't be away too long. I just can't comprehend that we will never speak again. Did know that the words you wrote about a friend in need would so soon repeat? Dear friend, seems like I just saw you singing, writhing and screaming, desperate and bleeding. You were such a passionate young thing. Dear friend, I hold faith in all the cards that lay but tell me where you've gone don't be away too long. I just can't comprehend that you will never sing again. Did know that the words you wrote about a friend in need would so soon repeat? and did know that the words you wrote about a friend in need would so soon repeat? Repeat, repeat, repeat?
