"Black Holes" as written by and Jemima Pearl Abegg John Eatherly....
Hey kid listen, Im trying to tell you about the human condition
You are your own black hole.

Hey kid listen, Im giving depth to your flat world vision.
You are your own black hole.

Disown what you cant control
You are your own black hole

Silence, can you hear it?
Its the sound of a man without spirit.
And the walls keep crumbling down around a self made victim.
I got this rope to pull you up but I cant save you if you wont grab a hold.
I cant save you if you wont save yourself.


I tried to heal your heart.
I tried to sail your shipwreck in the dark

This is the fine art of swinging and missing.
This is the fine art of sinking and swimming.

You see, it takes time to find a balance in such things.

Youll learn the fine art of crossing burnt bridges.

Old friend, fight physics.
Forget the cynicism in my lyrics.
You and I will laugh one day at our foolish mistakes.
With my bare hands, I will dig you out.
But I cant save you if you wont grab a hold.
I cant love you if you wont love yourself.

Hey kid, listen. Just dont suck me in.

    General Commentlove this fuckin band!!! this song reminds me of one of my old friends and how sick in the head he was and I tried to help him but he didn't help himself so we decided not to be friends anymore

    and now his life is going downhill

    it sucks but his own fault

    General Commenti think these lyrics are insanely true. the only person
    who can truly save you is yourself. yeah, there
    might be people along the way who will be there
    for you, but only as a temporary crutch. in the end
    all you've got is yourself and your own strength.
    "But I cant save you if you wont grab a hold.
    I cant love you if you won't love yourself."
    it's up to you and how you are willing to live.
