limp lines resign
limp lines resign
limp lines resign themselves to margins

like a drunken vampire, i miss the sun
i killed this summer, now it's done
let's split and reconvene in a warmer space
i'm scratching my head
turning nights into days
don't talk to me about boredom
don't talk to me about pride
i sucked it all up
i swallowed it down, it's fine

gangrene hangs on every word
bullshit endings to stories unheard
it's unheard of to me to not fathom doom
so what did you find in my emperor's tomb
some notebooks, some t-shirts
some bad spelling errors
strangled syntax, broken bottles and chairs
this here is my legacy
i leave all of this to thee
don't talk to me about boredom
don't talk to me about pride
i sucked it all up
i swallowed it down, it's fine

limp lines resign
limp lines resign
limp lines resign themselves to margins

drink at the funeral
piss on the corpse
yell at the sun
till your voice is all hoarse
i'm gone, this is goodbye

dead as a dream
beneath a grey chicago sky

    General Commenti love how the song just breaks down at the end
    everytime i hear this part i get chills:

    "drink at the funeral, piss on the corpse
    yell at the sun till your voice is all hoarse
    i'm gone, this is good bye"

    General CommentAnother Lawrence Arms song. pretty typical. Brendan drinks a lot and feels like he wastes away. "drunken vampire" he drinks all nights and then sleeps away the days. which is why he "misses the sun". Feeling useless and wasting away. by then end he is just fed up because summer is gone and he has to brace for another long chicago winter.
