lyrics

I can only make what I’m making, Juan in a million and half of them mistaken
Hi-ho, cheerio, serial game playing, pay per stream, mainly rivers that I bathe in
Gone to lengths with the cadence, ABCs are lining mazes,
each a syllable complacent, I can’t even write these statements
keep my face feigned straightened, turn the key, to keep me places, each of us have secrecies sustaining, cease to be, this entertaining
taming feats, stepping feet, to finite gazes, changing my beliefs, labeling the modeled ageless
shadows on the sea, sieve sorting out a playlist, play-doh out a mean, I mean I mold what I can play with
And I dove into the data, doting solely on my soul, see, dosey-do around the roses, only I can do it slowly
So show me what you made of, skin and bones, broken both, see, pose for what I've painted, pray that all of us aren't lonely

It's not you or I / who decides to move on
Reading all these lines / just try to get along
even when I heave and sigh, said I seen a dawn

Motivate, motivated, motorcades, know their name, know their faces, know their photogenic pain
Change places, shoe fits the feet, featuring a Davis, try to label Abel, cain ain’t what he seems
I can’t nurture, asserting what I need, heard it in the first verse, discerning by the beats
wheels turning, curvature a sermon pleads, purchasing a murmur, I am fluent in furniture, just furnishing the means
three hurting, working, what do I believe, cheap bourbon, sipping headaches, feeling urges to find seams
be sedate, self-medicate, breaking down the deeds, settle for the recipe, we’re guesstimating greeds
testing ketamine, a pessimistic east, pressing betterment yet fettering confederates don’t see
completely composed, so settled in, discreetly disclosed, severing is easy, but is keeping it closed?

It's not you or I / who decides to move on
Reading all these lines / just try to get along
even when I heave and sigh, said I seen a dawn

once more into the breach, beaches or peaks, preach pieces, of Reese’s, not seeing what I seek
see features, repeating, names, faces bleeding, my reach deepens, only meeting out of need of weakness
on the weekend, losing made-up reasons, choosing faded seasons, just try new shades revealing secrets
set aside receding ceilings, let’s arrive alone, the road of feelings, ode to wider loads we don’t deny to know we don’t believe in
Being I can go into my notes, I wrote it slowly, dial tones on phones, the photographs will never show me
Because I’m never known, watching what I won’t be, observations lo, and behold there’s no consoling
so listen to the stove igniting flames, flaking gold leaf, covering the coals, only covet what we don’t need
hunting in the lows, find the same, those that know me, coloring the holes, hiding smiles, I got no teeth

It's not you or I / who decides to move on
Reading all these lines / just try to get along
even when I heave and sigh, said I seen a dawn
