Your piled clothes were left in the basement.
You're holding breath - I can't see where your face went.

These cities grew up like vines on a tree-
with water, and lights, and history.
Lost both hands in a turret-gun fight,
Saw the ghosts for years every night.

(These days, you must be careful-
This one time I looked up
And saw glass raining down
From a fire that broke the windows out.
Another time, it was fire being born out of glass.)

And at the same speed, you nearly lost yourself.
And at the same peak, you really lost yourself.

Our bad vibes drowned in a washdown.
Our anger left us deaf and begging at a doorstep.

    General Commenti still dont know what any of DST's songs are about really, but it seems they have a sociological/psychological aspect to them. Not quite politically geared, but more towards individuals affected by societal injustices. Listening to their music just gives me the feeling of someone lost in a big, cold, dark city (boston probably)
