"You make me wanna die", he said that like he meant it
Story over, no more hoping to prevent it,but
"You make me wanna live", she that with a straight face
As she placed keepsakes inside her suit case
"Everything you say is a lie", he said that with a smirk
Fully aware it'll hurt when it hits the nerve
"Never heard a word I said", she responded
But he heard that and remembered it forever like a promise

Now here we are, wearing hatred on our masks
Let's carry on, put all your eggs inside that basket
Swing it round until the wooden handle snaps
Sort it all out and only keep the ones that cracked

"You make me wanna die", that's why I trust you
That's why I can look you in the eye and say "I love you"

I've never seen the sun decide to set so abrupt
As it does when the gun inside of you wakes up
Almost as if it's trying to hide from your tantrums
Head full of hurt, closet full of phantoms
Never seen the sun shine quite so loud
As it does when that little girl makes herself proud
Almost as if it wants to come play a part
In those moments when your heart ain't afraid of the dark
But sometimes I swear you make the sun confused
It wants to rise but it over analyzes what to do
It cries more than you when the storms come knocken'
Tries to hide it's face just to avoid watchin'
I would drive by and wave but there ain't no parade
So I'ma stay and wait for the day the sun goes away

What is it about women that brings out my venom?
Thought it was a peach but it tasted like a lemon
I ate it any way, can't help, it's my natural
From one extreme to another, no room for practical
Just act casual, maybe they won't notice
Or fall off the planet so you can escape the focus
Break the dirt, bury me down when I'm broken
Or let the undercurrent carry me out to the ocean
Can't swim as good as I could as a child
But as a kid I never swam, just stood there and smiled
Even though the idea of drowning in you
Seems kinda like it might be the wrong thing to do
You either gotta take a look at you and not the clown and the fool
Love can make suicide sound so cool

Let's watch the sun disappear into the water
Let's watch these people and point at the imposters
Let's lay it on the line, let's travel across it
Let's live forever, no matter what it costs us
Claustrophobic
Lots of down talk tossed
Doors closing and
Turn it off
Easily lost in moments
Forgot the motives
Sun almost exploded
Looking for proof
Who woulda knew the toy gun was loaded?
Go ahead and throw it out into the waves
Say goodbye to yesterday and try to fly the stress away
Took it from the sky, looked it square in the eye
Silence, trying to read between the snore and the sigh
There's a reason that they say that they can't take it with them
If you're leaving cause of love then it really isn't livin'

    General CommentThe background music is so haunting, it puts me in a setting of an eerie boardwalk or carnival. The combination of the music, beat, and lyrics are deadly. I'm hooked

    this actually reminds me of myself when I get mad. Something small will just piss me off and I will go from being fine and happy to completely irritated and irrational; and it will just ruin my mood for the day...I feel like he explains my feelings and behaviors to a T.
    and thats why I love this music

    That line paints such vivid image in my head.
    I like how slug uses that whole analogy Of the basket and the broken eggs.
    Pretty much the basket is a symbol for the relationship, and the eggs are the memories, or events the couple shared.
    In an argument leading to a bad ending, both parties end up leaving with mostly negative memories, of events and arguments, and forgetting all about the good times.

    General CommentA really good song, sadder than you'd think by the actaul music though. 'dying must be heaven, cause living is hell'. Strange enough, all just fits though.
