its just the summer air that I waited all winter for. It's the reason why I've come to abhor the dying of the trees.

so just give yourself away to anyone you'll meet today and ill call you the casualty.

the window is open and the wind's blowing through your hair.

you know I think I used to care but the torment has become as indistinct as my heartbeat, when everything's silent and I'm alone is the only time I think about it.

(the window is open and the wind's blowing through your hair.)

don't you feel beautiful just sitting there?

Where did your confidence go? did it blow away in the wind that came from your window? oh I know tonight you'll be all over ever kid you feel looks better than me. if you ask me to show you a good time ill show you the fucking apocalypse, because dear, that's what I feel is beautiful.

I could say you are too, but with all the lies and conformity I swear this end would be as euphoric as the poison that's in your veins

. call his name, I'm sure he's listening, but does he really listen to you, or maybe he's just looking for an intricately drawn cartography of the twisted roads underneath your clothes.

broken hearts and rotting minds is the only thing I have to disguise my ugliness from the outside.
do you need your eyes? can you make due with mine? I didn't think so

maybe you best close your window because you just may hear my voice. you do, but you call it something else.. Its what moves your sails, it's that wonderful feeling under your nails that you would kill for.

give me his design and you wont have to miss home again. I could give you forever if I had a lifetime degree in prudence, and prime experience in happiness.

you've drowned in water that doesn't even pass your knees. scream at me like I'm listening:
"Please! Please! Save me! Please! Save me!"
Well understand me, I'd save you, but I'm too busy saving myself.

    General CommentThis song is somewhat different from anything I've ever written. It's mainly about how being shallow can affect your life, and 'fucking' someone because theyre attractive is one of the biggest mistakes you can ever make. Its semi-inspired by the movie American Beauty, hence the 'broken hearts and rotting minds' part which pertains how that guy has all those tapes of things he feels is beautiful. While it is semi-inspired by the movie, it again has a lot to do with real life.

    Cardinal Wind means "extremely important wind" and when I say wind (and remember some of this is by my own personal experiance) i mean that I may never be considered as attractive by said people, but i can be extremely important to theyre life, and they need me more than they think.

    Dont get me wrong, im not arrogant or vain, i just needed to use myself as a better example.
