you're turning off your course again
the fall would kill a stronger man
with hungry headlights closing in
st john is looking welcoming
alright
death is always closer than
death's closer than all your friends
death is closer than you think
he's closer than your friends and things
alright

we drove that car into a full on spin
i wonder it just how would it feel if we dove on in
i caught a glimpse of my screaming friend
and when the sound cut out, i swore she’s laughing, alright
shattered lights spiral and blur on in
and then rain sang along to her freckled skin
the city's just a smudge on watery lens
i couldnt help but feel helpless so i kissed her again

turn it off and walk away
dont look into those waves
youll never be the same again
and we all suffer short term memory loss
from time to time

you got him jumping everywhere across the gaps and stairs
embracing every nick and cut and jammed fingered face plant it's
he doesnt care for good repair soak up the sun and air
chipped a tooth to feel the truth breaking every bone he cant mend
the bloods the thing that drives the dream that makes him think he can fall off
the bloods the thing that boils to steam that makes machines out of our hearts

the tires breathing out like tired moms and troubled teens
with secret smoke breaks balancing between showmanship and discovery
mr. melodrama is over there "covering things"
directing traffic, mumbling, like "move it along; nothing to see"
its such a funny dream its such a sight to see
honking horns and doubled breeze
matthews bridge in a watercolour bleed
and im just standing there shifting in my skin
sift through grate below
fall to the rivers wash, taste my blood
embrace my breaking bones

turn it off and walk away
don't look down into those waves
you'll never be the same again
and we all suffer short term memory loss from time to time
we all suffer short term memory loss from time to time
we all suffer short term memory loss from time to time
we all suffer short term memory loss
from time to time
