can i have some time?
oh my god i need to understand.
these rooms we built are growing smaller and i'm running out of places to hide. cake on the make up.
it's stinging my skin, but you won't recognize me. celebrate/breathe/believe/behave.
i'm all alone, full of uninspired fury. you're all alone because you wanted it that way.

let me kiss the lipstick on your face. let me smear the lipstick from your face.

i'll drink myself into oblivion and see who will take me home. i
'm not ready for the aftermath,
i turn the panic on again. i
'm not ready for the aftermath, i turn the panic on and on and on and on and on.

when the lights go out and i think about your brand new life and mine.
if your still in love is it criminal to let our ghosts dance in the park alone.

    General Commentlet me kiss the lipstick on your face. let me smear the lipstick from your face.


    This song is AMAZING. The recognition of loss and the conflicts between dealing about a past relationship perhaps ( (?) Applies exclusively between the lyrics and lines. Im also very fond of the way the band manages to use their music twith the aid of the lyrics written to compliment the situation being described.

    One example is the line "im not ready for the aftermath, i turn the panic on again" , the changeup after he sings that when the music speeds up. Hence, when people panic, everything moves so fast in your mind.

    Brian carley is such an amazing writer and the moirai, is probably single-handedly the best indie/rock band out to date. They're going to be huuuuge.

    General CommentAs always with this band, tight instrumentals, good lyrics especially when he says: "if your still in love is it criminal to let our ghosts dance in the park alone."
